Endowed Academic Excellence

Academic Excellence at Cazenovia College



Cazenovia College leadership is committed to increasing the institution’s endowment to attract, retain, and reward excellent faculty and staff while offering a high-quality education to a diverse and talented student population.

The quality of Cazenovia's academic experience depends on the teaching, scholarly, and creative activities of our faculty. To remain current in their individual disciplines, our faculty must interact with their peers and broaden their knowledge through research, artistic expression, and professional presentations. Increasing endowed academic funds is an investment in this work, which, in turn, will create a richer curriculum and a broader academic experience. Growth in endowed program funds will provide benefits that pervade our academic program, including our First Year Program, All-College Honors Program and our increasing emphasis on international studies.

In addition, new Endowed Chairs and Professorships will allow the College and its faculty to further expand upon, and increase student access to, a variety of academic programs and educational experiences while investing in professional development and highlighting faculty achievements.
