The Endowed Chairs and Professorships Dinner is held in the spring semester of each academic year to recognize and honor donors who establish TCU’s endowed faculty positions as well as the holders of those positions.

Endowed faculty positions are among the most prestigious and impactful types of investments a donor can make and are one of the most revered traditions of higher education. The 2018 dinner was held February 20, in the Brown-Lupton Student Union Ballroom and honored newly-established positions and their donors, as well as the inaugural and new holders of previously established positions.
