The University of Cambridge may get a professor of LEGO.

If approved, a LEGO Professorship of Play in Education, Development would be established in October 2015, according to the Cambridge University Reporter. The position would be funded by a £2.5 million (about $4 million) endowment from the LEGO Foundation, which would also be used to create a Research Centre on Play in Education, Development, and Learning (PEDaL) that this LEGO professor would run.
