Having endowed faculty members strengthens the Neag School of Education’s ability to contribute to the advancement of education, as well as provides students with access to leaders in the field. Creating endowed positions is also a key aspect of the Neag School’s strategic plan. Endowments allow faculty more freedom to follow their own course of research, rather than being bound by the parameters of a grant.
The Neag School’s two endowed chairs and four endowed professorships were made possible by significant contributions from the late Ray Neag and his wife, Carole — including a $1.6 million gift in 1996 and another $21 million in 1999.
