Give Where Your Heart Is
CEE is a remarkable department, where faculty, students, alumni, and staff feel connected to each other and the work being done here. Visitors notice the visible signs of our strong community, and new students quickly realize that they are part of someplace special. Our flexible undergraduate and graduate curricula and access to cutting-edge research opportunities allow CEE to continue to graduate classes of creative thinkers and doers.
We are able to provide an engaging, enriching, and encouraging environment because of the support of our donors. Giving to CEE is a vote of confidence in our program, and helps to keep us at a competitive level with other world-class programs.
Gifts at all levels are needed and appreciated from alumni and friends. Undergraduate alumni participation rates also impact our national rankings in publications such as U.S. News & World Report.
Give where your heart is.
