Support for faculty strengthens Rensselaer at its core. Endowment for faculty is critical at all levels:
- for the bright junior faculty member just making a mark in exciting new research
- for the teacher-scholar whose dedication to innovation in the classroom makes a subject new year after year
- for the senior professor working at the frontiers of research
- for the internationally-renowned scholar questing after new knowledge
Named professorships - in particular, fully endowed chairs - are the most effective means of ensuring that top scholars come to Rensselaer and stay here. The impact of endowed chairs is long-term and ongoing.
More importantly, support for faculty reverberates throughout the university. World-class faculty attract world-class students as well as major sources of research funding. That powerful combination is the key to success of The Rensselaer Plan.
