Time and again, WMU has benifitted from the wonderful support of the professional community to assure its engineering, technology and applied sciences programs remain on the cutting edge and provide the kind of education industry demands. By serving on engineering advisory boards, acting as guest lecturers, sponsoring student design projects or contributing research equipment, the college's alumni and other engineering partners from the professional community have helped the college achieve its current reputation for turning out engineers well grounded in theory and its practical applications.
Your support is critical at this point in our history. As Director of Development for the College of Engineering, I invite you to enter into a special relationship with our faculty and students by becoming one of the College's Partners for Engineering Education. Your support will give the college the strength and flexibility needed to move quickly forward during this exciting period of growth. We want to recognize your support, keep you apprised of the latest developments within the college and offer you opportunities to develop deeper ties with the programs most important to you.
The College's Partners in Engineering Education program recognizes your cumulative gifts to the college, including all past gifts, current pledges and duly documented future gifts, as well as those all-important annual gifts. Alumni, friends, corporations, foundations, associations, faculty, staff and students are among those who might qualify, through their support, as partners.
