How to Support our Faculty

Give to bestow the Highest Honor upon Faculty

Support Krannert's Faculty

An endowed chair is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a faculty member. Endowed chairs play an important role in the recruitment and retention of the finest teachers and researchers on Purdue’s campus. Your gift can underwrite research, development of new courses, and the opportunity to host guest lecturers.

  • Be in a specific area, such as accounting and economics, or in a broad area, such as entrepreneurship and the environment.
  • Exist in perpetuity providing resources that underwrite a faculty member's salary and expenses.
  • Be established in a donor's name or in the name of a person you wish to honor.
