Bingham Endowed Chairs

Each year, up to three faculty members will be selected by the board of the Bingham Fund as endowed chairs. The selection is based on a rigorous application process by an external committee of excellent peer teachers. 

The first recipients will be announced in spring 2024.

The Bingham Endowed Chair program is an exciting addition to the support that the Bingham Fund has provided Transylvania to identify and reward faculty members of exceptional ability who demonstrate excellent classroom teaching qualities.

This Bingham grant will allow Transylvania to be more competitive in recruiting and retaining top-notch educators … while recognizing the extraordinary efforts of those who receive the new Bingham award. It will also further underline the importance of excellent teaching as a cornerstone of the Transylvania student experience.
