Support for Faculty

Support for Faculty

UCSF’s highest faculty honor, Distinguished Professorships enable the University to make a permanent, substantial commitment to a researcher or clinician and his or her area of intellectual interest. Reserved for leaders in their fields, distinguished professorships signify UCSF’s belief in a faculty member’s past contributions and future promise. These endowments are often used to create new positions and attract world-renowned scientists to UCSF. Endowment earnings pay for salary, benefits, research and administrative assistants, equipment, publications and other expenses related to the faculty member’s work.

Endowed Chairs honor their holders by recognizing past achievements and future potential. Although sometimes used to attract new faculty, an endowed chair usually supports a current position. Because it is honorary and permanent, this type of endowment plays a vital role in sustaining a first-rate faculty – supporting the costs of research assistants, equipment, publications, professional travel and, in some cases, supplementing faculty members’ salary and benefits. Further gifts to endowed chairs can increase these endowments to the level of distinguished professorships, which provide even greater honor and support.
