Endowed Professorships at LSU Eunice

According to the philosophy statement that appears in the LSUE catalog, "the University strives to provide educational programs and related services which reflect and respond to the diversified interests, aptitudes, talents, needs, and goals of its constituency." LSUE seeks to meet these educational and cultural needs by attracting and maintaining an outstanding faculty that will provide a quality educational experience for all students.

The endowed professorship program is a major effort by the university, the community, the LSU Board of Supervisors, and the Louisiana Board of Regents to demonstrate commitment to quality of instruction by recognizing and fostering faculty excellence in professional projects/research that go beyond instructional responsibilities. The principle of each Endowed Professorship consists of funds donated by community sponsors and matched by the Board of Regents. The annual distribution of Endowed Professorship awards follows the guidelines set forth by the Board of Regents and the University's current policy statement, PS 62.

To be eligible to apply for an endowed professorship award, a faculty member must meet the following criteria:

  1. Hold faculty rank at LSU at Eunice.
  2. Be employed on a full‑time basis.
  3. Be on a tenure track.

Applicants submit proposals that are evaluated by a campus-wide Selection Committee for Endowed Professorships. Each endowed professorship is awarded for a period of one year. Award recipients may re‑apply in subsequent years, but a recipient may not be granted two concurrent endowments.
