At UC Santa Barbara, private philanthropic support is central to maintaining the high quality of our departments
and programs. One of the most important types of gifts is an endowed chair, which can help UCSB recruit
outstanding faculty and provide funds for cutting-edge research, graduate student support, and innovative
programmatic initiatives.
