Endowed Chairs

Endowed Chairs are faculty members with significant experience and accomplishments in their fields. Throughout their careers, they have built a network of collaborators and a robust research portfolio. Private funding provides the resources they need to further their work, publish their findings, travel to conferences, and create opportunities for promising students to gain real-life research experience. The work they do helps MSU remain a competitive force among other universities and research institutions on a global scale.
