Supporting world-class faculty
Faculty Professorships - $1–2 million
“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.”

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.
