Charles Barkley


the brightest minds of tomorrow deserve exceptional faculty today.

NBA legend “Sir Charles” Barkley’s love for Auburn goes beyond his memories of playing ball in Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum. He’s also a firm believer in the important role faculty members play in the lives of Auburn students. That’s why he funded the Charles W. Barkley Endowed Professorships to support underrepresented minority professors at Auburn with superior credentials in teaching, research, and service in their disciplines, and a demonstrated commitment to promoting diversity.

Endowed professorships such as these create vital resources to recruit and retain exceptional faculty members through salary enhancements, research support, and professional development.
