Naming Opportunities

Endowed Academic Programs
Endowed academic program funds of $25,000 or more help to continue a tradition of excellence at AUSB by providing our faculty with the resources to create innovative new programs or enhance their teaching through interdisciplinary projects and scholarly research. Endowed academic programs may be donor-named.

Endowed Academic Chairs
An endowed academic Chair of $1,500,000 or more provides the means to attract, retain, and honor distinguished faculty. The honored scholar receiving an endowed academic Chair receives recognition for achievements in an academic field and support of continued scholarship. Endowed academic Chairs often carry the prestige of a donor’s name.

Endowed Scholarships
Scholarships and other types of financial awards are increasingly important as a result of current economic realities and their importance cannot be overstated. New and endowed scholarships are critical to help us provide increased and sustained access to higher education. An endowed scholarship fund of $25,000 or more creates a permanent legacy for our students by establishing perpetual scholarship assistance from the derived income. An endowed scholarship fund maybe donor-designated or donor-named and based on need and/or merit.
