McCausland Foundation Programs

Foundation programs cultivate and retain faculty scholars who are simultaneously leaders in their academic fields and committed, creative teachers

About the Foundation

McCausland Foundation programs were established as part of a $10 million endowment from USC alumnus Peter McCausland (’71). Together with his wife, Bonnie, McCausland — chairman and chief executive officer of the Pennsylvania-based company Airgas, Inc. — sought to cultivate and retain faculty scholars who are simultaneously leaders in their academic fields and committed, creative teachers.

The benefit of this endowment goes far beyond its monetary value. Faculty can explore new areas of research and share findings in their field and beyond. Students gain from innovative courses and education opportunities outside the classroom sparked by the fellows’ creativity and dedication.

 


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
