As a faculty member, The Eileen Lamb O'Gara Chair holder will provide intellectual leadership to the school and the field through active research and teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Regardless of the rank, the faculty of the school will look for an excellent scholar who will thrive in our collegial community, engage in building the field of philanthropic studies, and demonstrate an interest in engaging current and future practitioners.
The Women's Philanthropy Institute (WPI) at the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy is recognized as the global nexus for study and education about women's philanthropy and its original research leads to a better understanding of the powerful role women play in philanthropy. See https://philanthropy.iupui.edu/institutes/womens-philanthropy- institute/index.html. The WPI is unique in its scope and comprehensive overview of women's philanthropy. It is the only such unit in the world allied with an academic institution and dedicated to research, education, and knowledge dissemination for all facets of the field. It is also the only organization to examine all aspects of women's philanthropy from unique structures and models to the multiple roles of women in philanthropy.
The Eileen Lamb O'Gara Chair holder is expected to become an integral member of the WPI. The Chair will work with the WPI's staff to coordinate the Institute's extant research as well as developing new research agendas on women's philanthropy. Specifically, the Chair will be involved in producing the WPI signature Women Give reports and other research reports published through current and future research grant funding, as well supporting other external public engagement efforts.
