For 10 years, DKE sponsors professorship
Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity is dedicated to keeping UNC at the top of its academic game.
In 2000, Edward “Tee” Baur, an alumnus of Delta Kappa Epsilon, began fundraising efforts to create the Delta Kappa Epsilon Distinguished Professorship, which established a chair endowed by the fraternity to be awarded to an outstanding member of the faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences. The first and current distinguished professor, David Reeve, is a philosophy professor at UNC. He was awarded the professorship in 2005.
“Each year I write to explain what I’ve done in part with some of the funds they’ve made available,” he said. “Getting the chair is funded by Delta Kappa Epsilon, but it’s not awarded by them,” he said. “It’s awarded by the University. So, in a sense, it’s like any donor.”
