Chellgren Endowed Professors

The Chellgren Endowed Professorship supports the work of faculty interested in making a sustainable contribution to undergraduate excellence at the University of Kentucky. Each endowed professor serves a three-year appointment. Candidates submit competitive applications that outline a specific three-year project designed to enhance undergraduate excellence. Projects vary in terms of the full range of activities that encompass undergraduate excellence, including improvement in teaching, creative changes to the curriculum, and co-curricular practices that represent cutting-edge approaches to higher education. Each project must outline a compelling objective, a timeline for implementation, and an explicit outcomes assessment plan. Upon completion of the appointment period, each Professor submits a final report and agrees to present a description of their project to the campus community. During the appointment period, each Professor also participates in various activities associated with the Chellgren Center, including mentoring of Chellgren Student Fellows. Successful applications are selected by a committee of faculty and are endorsed by the Chellgren Chair and the Provost before being submitted to the UK Board of Trustees for appointment. Each Professorship provides a $10,000 award that can be used as a faculty overload stipend or in support various project costs. Upon completion of the three-year appointment, each Professor attains status as an Emeritus Chellgren Faculty Fellow and in that role can choose to remain engaged in the work of the Chellgren Center.
