Endowed Chairs and Professorships, 2019-20

Loyola’s mission of teaching and research is supported by the outstanding contributions of our endowed chairs and professors, who we recognize on this site. Endowed faculty positions bring to the University established scholars and professionals recognized by their peers as experts in their fields.

Our endowed chairs and professors add vibrancy to Loyola’s shared faculty life and to the transformative education provided to our students. Over the past few years, through the allocation of funding generously provided during our Capital Campaign, Loyola has established additional endowments at an unprecedented rate, building scholarly strength in areas of strategic emphasis and mission alignment.

On this site we honor the distinguished scholars who hold these chairs and professorships and celebrate, with them, the richness that their contributions bring to the intellectual life of the University.
