Appendix C: Endowed Chairs

Although UCLA is a public institution, private gifts are increasingly important in maintaining the quality of the 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 is published, UCLA has 466 endowed chairs that have been approved by the Office of the President of the University of California.
