Endowed chairs provide Brandeis' renowned faculty members with the support they need for their groundbreaking research and award-winning teaching. Donors to named professorships receive annual reports on their chair incumbent’s research and teaching, as well as copies of their publications.

Brandeis counts among its faculty three Pulitzer Prize winners, two MacArthur Foundation Fellows (winners of so-called "genius" grants) and four Howard Hughes Medical Investigators.
