Investiture

The word “investiture” refers to the formal installation of someone to a post.  At UMMS, Investiture is a periodic recognition of distinguished faculty members who have been chosen for named professorships, and a celebration of the benefactors who made the named professorships possible.  Professorship endowments increase our ability to attract and retain individuals who are distinguished in their fields and provide an opportunity for donors to contribute directly to the enrichment of the academic and scientific environment.
