The Endowed Chair Fund was established with the University of Colorado, Department of Psychiatry to create a permanent and stable academic presence for psychoanalysis in our community, including recruiting psychoanalytic scholars from around the country.
This Chair would cement even closer our relationship with the Department of Psychiatry and puts psychoanalysis in a place of prominence within our Department at a time when an academic voice for psychoanalysis is more important than ever. It offers us the opportunity to attract an academic psychoanalyst and trainees within the department who have interest in psychodynamic psychology. It offers one of the best possible ways to enhance the level of psychoanalytic scholarship within our community as well as within psychoanalysis. We are excited about the rich educational, cultural, and research possibilities for this faculty position.
We have secured a $200,000 matching grant from the Department of Psychiatry. This money was donated by Arnold Eisendorfer who had received his psychiatric training here at the University of Colorado. This means that all donations up to $200,000 will be matched dollar for dollar, effectively doubling the amount of your contribution.
For those able to donate a thousand dollars or more, they will have their names added to a plaque which will be displayed within the Department of Psychiatry, acknowledging their contribution to this exciting and important project.
