Donor Recognition

Celebrating donor generosity that has shaped and enhanced the experiences of students and faculty in the College of Engineering.

The Foundation recognizes donors to highlight for our students and faculty the generosity that has shaped and enhanced their experiences in the College of Engineering. We understand that donors give to support a cause or an institution they believe in and that recognition is not the primary goal. But we also believe that recognition can spur broader participation. In addition to recognizing our donors on the website, the Foundation also organizes special events for donors throughout the year.
