They are invested to provide permanent annual support for scholarships, faculty and curriculum development and general operations. Scholarship endowment provides financial assistance to deserving, academically gifted students. Faculty endowment supports named faculty chairs, distinguished professorships and visiting lecturers. University endowment supports a full range of programs from academic initiatives to student services to the care and maintenance of the university and its grounds.
