Scholars / Investigators / Mentors: The impact of endowed professorships

Brown is positioned to contribute to understanding and addressing the world’s most pressing problems through teaching, research and service. Our investment in faculty will drive the University to new levels of academic distinction and societal impact.

Richard Locke Provost, Professor of Political Science and International and Public Affairs

We will create 123 new endowed faculty chairs to retain exceptional leaders, recruit top-tier scholars in fields of emerging importance, and welcome additional faculty from historically underrepresented groups.

The faculty supported through BrownTogether will teach and conduct research in areas touching every aspect of the human experience, from health, to peace and justice, to the ways in which we create art, interact with technology and sustain life on Earth.

Together, as a community of thinkers, innovators and doers, Brown’s faculty will accelerate the creation of new knowledge that will inform solutions to our most pressing social problems and improve lives across the globe.

Support Brown's faculty.

With your help, we're bringing top-flight educators to Brown.
