FACULTY SUPPORT 26
The world needs more engineers, and the college’s planned 35 percent increase in student
enrollment, along with the increased goals for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and
mathematics) leadership by the University as a whole, create a requirement for more faculty
talent than ever before.
Through endowed professorships, Engineering will be able to recruit, recognize, and retain
faculty at all levels of their careers, including midcareer faculty. Our alums and friends are
stepping forward to help.
