Each year, the Women Studies Program relies on private gifts to maintain its tradition of educational excellence. Every gift you make to the UNM Women Studies program makes a difference and changes lives for our students, faculty and the program. Gifts to the program promote an ongoing investment in students, faculty and educational programs.

We appreciate your support.

Endowed Chairs and Professorships

If you are thinking about a larger donation to WMST, we would like to have the possibility to add distinguished faculty as full-time members of the WMST faculty.  Endowed chairs and professorships are awarded to scholars who have made extraordinary and outstanding contributions to their fields and who have established superb national and international reputations in their fields of study.  Endowed Chairs and Professorships may be established through gift(s) from private entities.  (An Endowed Chair requires a minimum of $1,500,000 to establish, while a Distinguished Professorship requires a minimum of $500,000).
