The Mailman School of Public Health faculty is comprised of world-class scholars, practitioners, and advocates whose extraordinary diversity of academic and professional training creates a unique environment that fosters innovation and collaboration. Mailman School faculty members bridge theory and practice through their research, teaching, and national and international fieldwork, leading to the improvement of the public health in greater New York, throughout the United States, and around the world.
Endowed professorships—the highest distinction a university can bestow upon deserving faculty members—enable the School to encourage and reward excellence in scholarship and teaching. Endowed positions bring great honor to recipients and supply their yearly salary as well as dedicated research funds that can be applied to new areas of inquiry.
To attract, recognize, and retain exceptional faculty members, the Mailman School of Public Health is seeking to create an additional 14 endowed professorships and 16 endowed junior professorships, which will triple its leadership in key areas. Donors who value academic excellence and understand the critical role of endowed professorships in recruiting and retaining top talent may wish to consider establishing an endowed professorship in their own name(s) or in the name(s) of others they wish to honor. Once established, an endowed professorship exists in perpetuity, bringing distinction and honor to the donor(s), honoree(s), and their descendants in perpetuity.
