Faculty Support

At Chicago Booth, we’re bullish about ideas, and we rigorously test them. At the heart of this process is our faculty, who actively are expanding the world’s understanding of the complex dynamics of markets, businesses, and organizations across disciplinary boundaries. Investing in faculty has impact that extends to the future leaders who are our students and the current leaders around the globe whose thoughts, policies, and actions we influence.

In addition to providing general support for faculty research and curricular initiatives, below are a few examples of ways to invest in the Booth faculty:

  • Professorships: Endowed professorships play a key role in helping the school attract and retain outstanding faculty in every area. In turn, Booth is able to strategically grow our faculty and expand our intellectual footprint.
  • Junior faculty fellowships: Booth strives to attract and retain the most talented junior faculty members from around the globe. Junior faculty fellowships are a key resource in these efforts, as they enable us to provide research sabbaticals to our most promising new hires and untenured associate professors.
  • Faculty research funds: Robust investment in research at Booth can reveal revolutionary, enduring knowledge. Endowed faculty research funds support the school in accelerating the pace of discovery
