Named Professorships

Creating an Endowed Professorship

The excellence of Johns Hopkins rests on its ability to attract and retain the very finest faculty members and academic leaders. Endowed professorships support the work of outstanding faculty, significantly advancing their work as teachers, scholars, researchers, and clinicians.

Endowment gifts are invested by Johns Hopkins. A portion of the income is spent each year for the designated purpose and the remainder is added to the principal. Donors may choose to name an endowed professorship for themselves and/or in honor or memory of someone else.
