Faculty Support

Elevate teaching and research

When did you first know what your future could be? Did a mentor inspire you during a class, in a lab or on a study-away trip? Maybe your favorite instructor gave you the tools and confidence to go after your dreams. 

The best faculty members change lives, in the classroom and beyond. They motivate students. They make discoveries and create knowledge, and are known nationally and internationally. They raise the profile of their departments and the entire university. 

You can endow a fellowship, professorship or chair to help us attract and retain incredible faculty members.

What is a faculty endowment?

These gifts help Missouri State attract and retain outstanding educators. You can endow a fellowship, professorship or chair. These are among the highest academic awards Missouri State can grant to faculty members. The endowment provides faculty members with additional resources for research or teaching. You may support any academic area of your choice with an endowment.
