Faculty Support



At Saint Joseph’s, endowed faculty positions provide extraordinary resources for establishing and maintaining a vibrant intellectual community and for honoring exceptional faculty members. Faculty support also helps Saint Joseph’s to continue to attract and retain world-class scholars. Your collective gifts enhance the University’s Catholic, Jesuit mission with an emphasis on scholarship.

New professors who come to Saint Joseph’s either as endowed chairs or tenure track faculty members will join the academic community knowing their professional ambitions and innovative ideas will be fully supported. In this realm of giving, generosity translates into state-of-the-art instructional equipment and labs, stipends for travel, and research or necessary office space and informal spaces for interaction with colleagues and students.

Along with other alumni and friends, you can take great pride in the transformative power of your gift. In addition to honoring and attracting great scholars, endowed faculty positions help the University to recruit better students. You will be helping to build the reputation of SJU while ensuring that the University is equipped to inspire, educate and motivate the next generation of great scholars.
