Monroe Moosnick Professorships in the Natural Sciences

Contributions from many alumni and others whose lives were touched by an outstanding teacher and humanitarian continue to build the Monroe Moosnick Endowment, which was established on the occasion of chemistry professor Moosnick’s retirement from the regular faculty of Transylvania University. Through the endowment, two professors in the natural sciences who best emulate Monroe Moosnick’s commitment to teaching, lifelong learning, and service to students will receive annual salary supplements of $5,000. In honor of Moosnick’s commitment to the scientific fields that nurture medical studies, two members of the Transylvania faculty in chemistry, biology, or physics will hold these four-year awards. Preference will be given to faculty members with at least two years of teaching experience at Transylvania. Based on continued outstanding performance in the classroom and exemplary service to the campus community, the awards may be renewed or other faculty members in these fields may be named. Nominations from current students, faculty, and members of the staff are encouraged. In keeping with the goals of the endowment, Moosnick Professors will be selected by the president and dean of the university.
