Dean's Fund for Faculty Excellence

We have a hard-won reputation. Help us keep it.

Darden’s 70 professors uphold a tradition of teaching excellence.

Thirty-five percent of the Darden faculty is age 60 or older, which will lead to a wave of retirements in the next decade.

This generational turnover presents a strategic challenge — and an opportunity.

As business schools worldwide enter a new era of fierce, global competition, Darden must support its all-star professors and attract the next generation of scholars, who — like elite tri-athletes — will deliver teaching excellence, advance knowledge through research, and communicate with the practicing manager, changing the way the world does business. We at Darden cannot stand still. Not even for a moment. We must accelerate the momentum we have established and:

  • Develop and retain our top-ranked faculty.
  • Recruit outstanding professors.
  • Strengthen our research capabilities.
