Pioneer Faculty Endowment

The UCSC Pioneer Faculty Endowment honors the continuing influence of an extraordinary group of scholars and teachers, who gathered together among the redwoods to create a unique academic community, characterized by curiosity, idealism, social equality, and an abiding commitment to the life of the mind. Through the generosity of donors to the Pioneer Faculty Endowment, the University Library adds to its collection materials that reflect the vision and achievements of these remarkable founding scholars. This Endowment remains open and can continue to provide funding for many Library needs in direct reverence to the Pioneer Faculty and their great contribution to University.
