Endowed Positions

These endowed chairs and professors do vital work for the College of Human Sciences. These positions specialize in areas of study identified by the donors who created the endowments. Endowed funds are managed through the Iowa State Foundation, for the benefit of the College.

Dean’s Chairs and Department Chairs

Endowed leadership positions enable administrators — deans, directors, and department chairs — to leverage human and financial resources to intensify the impact of their unit and its programs. Because earnings from endowments are not intended for one specific project, program or person, they can be focused on urgent or emerging priorities.

Chairs and Professorships

Endowed chairs and professorships are the most esteemed positions in academia. They help recruit and retain exceptional scholars by acknowledging their professional leadership and ensuring appropriate compensation. Earnings from endowed positions further research, provide students valuable opportunities, and expand academic programs.

Visiting Professorships

A visiting professorship enables Iowa State to host a distinguished professor by funding expenses such as travel and an honorarium. Visiting professors provide students and faculty with specialized entrepreneurial, business or research knowledge. This creates opportunities that cannot be matched through traditional classroom and departmental activities.

Faculty Fellowships

Fellowships are awards given to encourage faculty to pursue new ideas, creative projects and research that allow them to grow in their disciplines and bring fresh ideas into the classroom.
