Endowed faculty positions elevate TCU's academic reputation

ENDOWED FACULTY POSITIONS ATTRACT EMINENT NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARS. IN TURN, OUTSTANDING SCHOLARS ATTRACT OTHER NOTABLE FACULTY AND THE BRIGHTEST STUDENTS.

TCU graduates place tremendous value on relationships with their professors. These connections have been — and will continue to be — at the center of the TCU experience. TCU seeks out professors who have a passion for teaching as well as for conducting research — a combination that keeps them at the top of their fields.

Endowed faculty positions attract eminent national and international scholars. In turn, outstanding scholars attract other notable faculty and the brightest students. Endowed positions, such as endowed deanships, as well as chairs, professorships, and professional-in-residence and artist-in-residence positions, are carefully targeted toward TCU's mission and aspirations.

At TCU, all professors teach, even the most distinguished. Consequently, new endowed positions also help move the University toward a lower student/faculty ratio. TCU is committed to ensuring that this important indicator never goes above 14:1, thus keeping TCU in line with other selective universities.
