Endowed Chairs

Supporting our research

Our professors work at the interface between research, politics and society and set the agenda for contemporary public policy debate. They build the link between political actors, fellow experts and our students, the next generation of future leaders.

The Hertie School currently hosts seven endowed chairs, generously supported by a variety of foundations as well as public and private sector organisations.

If you would like to learn more about funding an endowed chair at the Hertie School, please contact our Advancement and Fundraising team.
