Universities compete fiercely to attract the world’s best teachers and researchers. At the end of the day, they are our primary product. Their teaching prepares future leaders. Their discoveries change industries, cure diseases, and advance fields ranging from the hard sciences to the arts. Creating a named professorship or endowed chair position or contributing to an existing fund set up for such positions is one of the most powerful ways to ensure Virginia Tech remains a top-tier institution that is respected around the world.
