  • community development
  • and much more.

Endowed professorships

Your gift to endow a chair or professorship at Case Western Reserve is not only an investment in the future of the university and its faculty, but in our students.

The ongoing support from an endowment enables faculty to advance experiential learning, develop new research ideas and expand collaborations. By growing their own knowledge and portfolios, faculty elevate departmental rankings and reputation, drawing promising talent to our campus.

Listening to my students, I find a generation that thinks creatively about politics, gender, race, sexualities. ... Their desire for inclusion and capacity for acceptance astonishes me; they inspire me to think more fluidly about myself. They have changed me profoundly as a teacher and as a human being."

Lisa Nielson, PhD, the inaugural Anisfield-Wolf SAGES Fellow at the College of Arts and Sciences, a position underwritten by the Cleveland Foundation
