Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science Endowed Chairs

Although UCLA is a public institution, private gifts are increasingly important in maintaining the quality of the University’s three missions of teaching, research, and community service. Among the principal forms of private support are endowed professorships or “chairs,” which support the educational and research activities of distinguished members of the faculty.

As this catalog goes to press, UCLA has 430 endowed chairs that have been approved by the Office of the President of the University of California, as follows. (Asterisks indicate new chairs that have been approved by the Office of the President since publication of the 2015-16 UCLA General Catalog.)
