Endowed Faculty Chairs and Professorships at Kansas State University
Kansas State University is home to many leading scholars. More than 60 of our faculty are, or have been named, University Distinguished Professors, which is a lifelong honor bestowed by the Provost on those who have made outstanding contributions to their field.
In addition, charitable contributions support a number of outstanding faculty members. In 2011, more than $2 million was donated for endowed chairs, with an additional $6.5 million committed. An appointment to an endowed chair is another great honor given to dozens of top K-State faculty.
