Development Funds

Donors help support the work of faculty members in a particular college and/or department by creating an endowed faculty development fund.

A gift of $10,000 or more establishes a named endowed faculty development fund.

Donors of endowed faculty development funds receive annual reports on the financial status of their endowment fund.

Distinguished Professorships

Endowed professorships help ensure that the University attracts and retains distinguished and effective professors. Annual stipends are awarded to faculty members granted a professorship. Professorships are very prestigious, and the faculty member receiving such distinction carries the name of the donor, i.e. "The John Doe Distinguished Professor in Business Administration."

A named endowed professorship at UL Lafayette begins with a gift of $60,000 which is then augmented with a $40,000 match from the State of Louisiana's Board of Regents Support Fund (BORSF).

Donors may select the college and/or department their professorship benefits.

Donors of endowed professorships receive annual reports from the UL Lafayette Foundation on the financial status of their endowment fund.
