Priority 2: Faculty Support & Curriculum Development

From One Generation of Darden Faculty to the Next


Masters of the MBA classroom, Darden faculty members are accomplished thinkers and educators who stretch the thinking of Darden students and shape them into the business leaders of tomorrow. They are considered the world’s best.

Some 31 percent of Darden’s faculty members are age 60 or older. The decade ahead will bring a number of retirements of beloved senior colleagues, many of whom helped to build the reputation that Darden now enjoys. We must replace them with a new generation of superior educators and thought leaders.

Philanthropic gifts will provide endowed professorships, fellowships and executive chairs — powerful tools to recruit and retain world-class professors who meet Darden’s standards of teaching excellence. We also seek endowed and current-use funding to support faculty research at Darden.
