"Before joining XXX University, she served as the Des Lee Professor in Contemporary Art at the University of YYY."
"St. Louis philanthropist E. Desmond "Des" Lee believed that “education is the key to our progress and hope for the future.” In late 1996, he and then-Chancellor Blanche M. Touhill of the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) announced the Des Lee Collaborative Vision: Connecting St. Louis through Educational and Community Partnerships. This historic announcement was the beginning of an incredible linking of key institutions in the St. Louis community with the higher education resources and expertise at UMSL, through a unique system of endowed professorships that would partner the university with the community’s cultural institutions. Through the years, the Des Lee Collaborative Vision expanded to include professorships at St. Louis University, Washington University and Webster University.
The endowed professors in the Des Lee Collaborative Vision are quite unique. In addition to traditional teaching, research and scholarly obligations, professors in the Collaborative Vision spend at least half of their time engaged in community outreach and development in relation to their fields of study. Professors partner with each other and with one or more of the many community agencies in the St. Louis region and beyond. They pay special attention to the educational needs of underserved populations via creative processes, enhanced collaborations, shared best practices and a mindset that everyone deserves a challenging and fresh approach to obtaining a quality education." http://www.umsl.edu/desleecollaborative/history.html
"Qu’est-ce qu’une chaire dotée?
Une chaire dotée est parmi les plus hautes distinctions accordées à un universitaire en reconnaissance de contributions originales passées et éventuelles dans son domaine d’expertise. La personne nommée à une chaire dotée peut être un membre actuel du corps professoral
ou une personne provenant d’un autre établissement." http://www.hopitalexceptionnel.com/.../orthopedik_automne_20...
