Endowed Chairs and Professorships

The best of the University of Missouri's faculty are equal to the best anywhere, but we need more of them to make the University of Missouri a world-class institution. One way of achieving this goal is through the establishment of endowed chairs (or named professors) and hiring outstanding faculty to fill these positions.
