Named Faculty Positions 2019-04-18T10:55:35-05:00

We now have 47 named positions. These funded positions are made possible by private support and are awarded in special recognition and appreciation of each recipient’s record and contributions at Iowa State University.  Depending upon the availability of funds and donor restrictions, these appointments are for two to five years. 

We are committed to continue to work hard both to increase the number of funded positions and to have each of them endowed. As you know, competition for the best faculty talent has become increasingly rigorous. Establishing this type of permanent support is absolutely crucial to our efforts to recruit and retain the finest researchers and educators.
