Faculty and students experiment at a creek

Supporting world-class faculty

Faculty Professorships - $1–2 million

Nearly 80 percent of LaGrange full-time faculty members have earned terminal degrees in their areas of specialty. Their dedication to individual success is reinforced on campus by a teacher-student ratio of 11-to-1. Such a personal setting allows professors to create a mentoring relationship with their students.

By raising funds specifically for faculty professorships, we can continue to recruit and retain world-class faculty members, which will translate into more engaged student relationships, stronger undergraduate research, superior academic outcomes and greater preparation for pursuing a career or graduate studies. The community also benefits through “brain gain” in the region and through service, continuing education and the resulting improved quality of life. 

“The professors at LaGrange have helped me throughout my college experience by meeting me where I am. Even when I may fall, they always help me move forward and make sure that I stay on track.”
