2013 Endowed Chairs Honorees

The holder of an endowed chair receives one of the most prestigious honors that can be bestowed on a University of Virginia faculty member. The highest levels of performance, and national and international recognition of that performance, are inherent guidelines for appointment of a chairholder. The institutional expectation of unquestionable excellence means that the person is deemed to have achieved the highest stature and exemplary accomplishment in a discipline or area of research, teaching, or clinical service as judged by an independent assessment of his or her peers.

Each the honorees received a captain’s chair with a plaque affixed bearing their name and the name of their endowed professorship. This year’s honorees include:
