Drew faculty are marked by an intense thirst for learning and the need to impart that to others. But don’t mistake them for self-denying ascetics.
As inspiring teachers and intellectual champions, our professors seek support for their continued leadership and service — whether in the classroom, the laboratory, or their disciplines. Support for faculty research and development allows them to hone their skills as both mentors and scholars.
Equally important is creating a climate in which professors can be readily attuned to the needs of their students. A 2014 Gallup–Purdue study found that college graduates were three times as likely to be successful in life if they had forged a connection with a professor who had encouraged them.
Endowing professorships and funding professional development—allowing for innovative course development, conference attendance and professional exploration—are crucial targets at Drew needing support.
Assume a leadership role at Drew by founding a named professorship, chair, deanship or faculty research fund. Learn more on the One And All Endowment page.
