Professorship

An endowed professorship recognizes rising stars and supports outstanding mid-career faculty. Funds from this type of endowment are typically used to help further research and teaching in areas of critical importance in the school. Endowed professorships help The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston encourage and retain the most talented faculty in the country. As of September 1, 2023, a $500,000 gift is required to establish a Professorship endowment.
