As part of the Year of the Faculty commemoration, SMU salutes the century-long contributions of the faculty to the development of the university, the advancement of their disciplines, the success of SMU graduates and the betterment of society.
A significant contributor to faculty accomplishment has been the creation of endowed faculty positions—professorships and chairs—made possible by farsighted and generous donors. At a luncheon on November 14, 2014, SMU honors those who have supported the SMU faculty and those who hold the prestigious appointments.
See the endowed faculty donor event program, which includes more information about the importance of endowed positions and a commemorative list of named positions at SMU.
