Ida Cordelia Beam Distinguished Visiting Professorships Program

About the Ida Beam Visiting Professorships

The Ida Cordelia Beam Distinguished Visiting Professorships Program was established in 1978-79 with the income from a bequest to the University by the late Ida Cordelia Beam of Vinton.

Past visits by distinguished teachers and scholars from the United States and abroad greatly enrich our instructional and research programs. The Ida Cordelia Beam visiting professorships are a source of intellectual stimulation for students and faculty, and provide an opportunity to bring new perspectives in knowledge and teaching to our campus.
