The Impact of Endowed Professorships and Directorships
Endowed professorships and directorships bring impactful scholars to Penn — passionate teachers who advance the frontiers of research and help redefine professional practice. Proceeds from endowed positions fuel the recipient’s work and elevate the reputation of the department and School.
The Weitzman School offers a special matching program for endowed faculty support.
I am deeply grateful for the professorship you funded and that I hold. It has absolutely increased my visibility, which in turn increases the visibility of my work.

Established March 2019. The purpose of the Fund is to support a professor of practice in the Landscape Architecture department. If funds do not accrue to fulfill a professorship, the funds will support fellowships at the School of Design.
