In 1990-91, the Board of Regents (BoR) established the Board of Regents Support Fund (BoRSF) Endowed Professorships subprogram, patterned after the successful Endowed Chairs for Eminent Scholars subprogram, to strengthen instruction and research across a diverse array of campuses. Since its inception, the Endowed Professorships subprogram has operated as a non-competitive opportunity for campuses to receive State match of donor contributions.  Endowed professorships are established to help recruit and retain superior faculty aligned with the submitting campus’s role, scope, mission, and strategic priorities. The recipient of an Endowed Professorship must be a faculty member whose research, teaching, and/or public service uniquely contributes to the mission(s) of their departments, their campuses, and the State. The Endowed Professorships subprogram is designed to further achievement of the constitutionally prescribed goals of the Support Fund: to enhance the quality of higher education and promote economic development in Louisiana.  As of July 1, 2017, for each $20,000 State match requested, a minimum $80,000 non-State contribution is required. While a non-State contribution may exceed $80,000, State match will be provided only in indivisible $20,000 increments.  BoRSF faculty endowment programs are designed to provide matching resources to non-State donations, the earnings from which support the productivity and performance of superior faculty.
