Endowed Teaching Chair
The Endowed Teaching Chair Program for Northwest Florida State College is designed to enrich student achievement by recognizing the strength of the college, its teaching faculty and instructional departments.
Teaching Chairs have traditionally been associated with universities to lure pre-eminent researchers to a college. The Endowed Teaching Chair Program at NWFSC molds the tradition into the college by rewarding excellence in teaching provided by involved and concerned faculty.
Funds for each Endowed Teaching Chair are provided from a private contribution of $50,000. Distinguished Endowed Teaching Chairs are established from private contributions of $100,000. The interest from this permanent endowment provides annual support to a distinguished college instructor or innovative academic department.
The determination of Endowed Teaching Chair awards is made based on a combination of guidelines established by the donor and those developed by the college in concert with the Foundation. Each Endowed Teaching Chair is established in the name chosen by the donor. The donor may select the academic discipline to be recognized by the contributor.
Opportunities for individuals, organizations or businesses to establish Endowed Teaching Chairs may be discussed by contacting the Director of the NWFSC Foundation, Inc.
