Endowed Program Funds

School, college, department and program endowments provide resources that accelerate programmatic improvements in teaching, research, creative activity and other endeavors. They also can elevate the school, college, department or program to a level of national prominence.

TCU's centers and institutes bring together some of the university's most distinctive programs to address societal needs and provide services and educational programs to both students and the greater community. These are interdisciplinary programs that combine the resources of multiple departments to develop innovative teaching and research, unique co-curricular experiences for students and educational programs of interest to the public. These endowed programs provide our students with opportunities to make a difference for the greater good.
