We've been growing — in the last decade, we've doubled our majors — the department now has 1650+ majors, and the growth continues. We also have grown in research — almost $6M in external funding from a variety of federal and industrial sources. We're known by the company we keep — research and educational collaborations with NSA, Northrop Grumman, NIST, IBM, Morgan Stanley, GE, Cisco, T-Rowe Price, just to name a few.
Alumni and Friends are a key part of our growth story! As you well know, state resources simply cannot keep pace with our breakneck growth. Your gift supports funds student research (both graduate and undergraduate), supports our curricular and pedagogical innovations, helps update our labs and shared spaces for students, and helps foster a greater sense of community through student organizations. All this leads to better student experience and success, and the success of our students and alums positions us as a prestigious, competitive department whose graduates go to the best places and great futures.
Thank you for your generosity — past, present, and future!
