Office of Development


What We Do:

The mission of the Office of Development is to support the College of Engineering in its role as an outstanding organization ranked among the best engineering schools in the U.S. and as a world leader in engineering education, research and service. Our team maintains an acute vision of the importance of engineering research to today’s society and is uniquely qualified to manage investments wisely.

Through your support, the College of Engineering will not only stay on the cutting edge of research and technology, but also attract the brightest professors and students through fellowships, scholarships and funding for specific projects. Raising funds to meet these goals is the most important part of our mission. Although the Utah legislature appropriates funding to Utah State University, only 31 cents of every dollar necessary for engineering programs comes from the state. To make up the rest, the college depends on generous gifts, donations and grants. Even small contributions can change the life of a student and give a wonderful return on your investment. Please contact me with questions about how you can leave a lasting impact on the College and Utah State University.
