If knowledge is power, UNC Charlotte’s influence is strongly felt across the state as the region’s only public research university. Our diverse faculty offers an extraordinary blend of talent and intellectual capital to our student body and to companies and organizations.
Acquiring and retaining talent is fundamental to our success as an urban research university. Our students demand it; our corporate and community partners are eager for it; and our communities improve when informed by the knowledge and the experiences of a great university faculty.
Endowed professorships help attract and retain faculty, because those dollars support their research. Currently, UNC Charlotte has 40 endowed professorships and aims to have 12 percent of our tenured faculty hold named positions. Your support would benefit UNC Charlotte from the inside out.
