When the University launched Light the Way: The Campaign for Catholic University in 2019, one of the primary goals was to sustain the excellence of our faculty through an increased commitment to scholarship, research, training, and engagement. 

Thanks to the generous support of our community for Light the Way: The Campaign for Catholic University, we have exceeded our goal of establishing 12 new endowed chairs to attract and retain outstanding scholars from all disciplines. 

The 13 new endowed faculty chairs include:

Endowed professorships are valuable on many levels. Not only do they attract and retain top scholars, but they help to support research. Endowing a chair also means that position is funded in perpetuity, enabling a continuity of study.

“The value of these positions goes beyond the money invested in them. The returns are made permanent by the spreading of knowledge and the enabling of discovery, which in turn attract both more students to the University, as well as other stellar faculty.”
— Provost Aaron Dominguez
