Faculty and Research
At Stevens, professors do much more than teach.
Stevens faculty are mentoring students, conducting research, publishing papers, collaborating with global colleagues and driving thought in challenging fields such as coastal resiliency, high-frequency trading, biomedical engineering and more.
Support for each of Stevens’ three schools and one college enables academic leadership to meet their strategic priorities. These funds provide pivotal resources for faculty development, enhanced classroom teaching, experiential learning, career mentoring and general operations.
Faculty Research and Centers
At Stevens, support for research is enabling faculty to pursue medical breakthroughs with the Center for Healthcare Innovation, protect shipping ports through the Maritime Security Center, prevent high-tech trading fraud through the Hanlon Financial Systems Center, and explore machine learning in the Stevens Institute for Artificial Intelligence.
Research is a foundational aspect of the undergraduate experience. Starting as early as their first year, students discover knowledge — and their own passions — through investigation and experimentation, guided by expert faculty in advanced facilities.
Stevens seeks to provide outstanding faculty with support that can be used as seed funding for research, summer stipends for curricular development, or for equipment purchases and professional conferences.
Professorships and Chairs
Faculty chairs and professorships enhance the resources available to trailblazing researchers and professors. The funding and recognition that faculty members receive when awarded a named chair or professorship enable them to advance their careers and expand the scope and impact of their work. The institutional prestige associated with named positions is key for recruiting and retaining world-class professors.
Establish a Fund
Many donors establish a fund to honor their experience at Stevens, give back what they received when they were a student, pay tribute to a loved one, or honor a reunion year and milestone celebration.
