At the Friedman School, outstanding faculty advance knowledge, inspire students, and transform the world through their research. Endowed professorships—one of the highest honors in academia—help us recognize and retain stellar faculty and demonstrate Tufts’ commitment to outstanding educators, researchers, and innovators in every field.
Educating Future Generations
Endowed professorships can provide an outstanding education for future generations of Tufts students and accelerate scholarship in—and support—strategic research areas, such as:
- Nutrition security and health equity
- Food systems, climate and sustainability
- Nutrition interventions, communication, and behavior change
- “Food as Medicine” or research on the intersection of food, nutrition, and healthcare
Establish your legacy by endowing a faculty position. The Professorship Challenge is an opportunity for you and Tufts to make a gift together. Your portion of the gift is 60 percent, while Tufts University provides 40 percent.
