At the heart of Oregon State University's pursuit of excellence are faculty: scholars and scientists who advance knowledge while teaching, challenging, and guiding students. These are the men and women in whom OSU's educational mission lives and breathes.
There is no more effective means of enabling OSU to compete in recruiting and retaining top academic talent than by establishing endowed faculty positions.
Recognizing outstanding faculty
Meet the holders of OSU's endowed faculty positions along with the visionary donors who created these endowments.
Endowed faculty positions created to date through The Campaign for OSU, out of the university's total of 118.
The Provost’s Faculty Match Program
Donors participating in the first phase of the innovative Provost's Faculty Match Program established or expanded 22 endowed faculty position funds with commitments totaling more than $21 million. To follow this tremendous success, the OSU Provost’s Office has committed $2.5 million to fund a second phase of this matching program, offering the potential of leveraging an additional $10 million in private support.
