Endowed Athletic Department Positions

Harvard is grateful to the alumni and friends who have established endowed positions. These gifts honor the great tradition of athletic and academic excellence embodied by generations of Harvard student-athletes, and enable future generations to pursue these noble ideals.

In much the same way that an endowed chair supports a university professor, Harvard's 18 endowed positions within the Department of Athletics help provide the financial support for the Crimson's 42 varsity intercollegiate teams and free unrestricted funds to benefit the Department of Athletics and the College as a whole. Seventeen of the endowed positions within the Department of Athletics are head coaching positions; the other endowment is earmarked for Harvard's Director of Athletics.
