Endowment for Professorships


An exceptional education is possible only with dedicated, engaged, and talented professors who inspire and challenge students.

Transformative education is found in the nexus between student and faculty member. The opportunity for and benefits of student-faculty interaction are particularly pronounced at Mount Saint Vincent. Our student to faculty ratio is 13:1; the average class size is under 20 students. Across campus, a spirit of respect and intellectual curiosity abides in part because our center of gravity turns on extraordinary teachers and scholars. Across the curriculum, outcomes are measurable and undeniably impressive. Accomplishment is extraordinary.

Endowed professorships are an internationally recognized way to celebrate our most accomplished colleagues while providing financial resources that help improve the compensation of all excellent faculty members. Endowed professorships enhance the University’s ability to recruit and retain extraordinary teachers and scholars.

The University will raise $6 million in endowed funds for professorships.
