Donor Recognition

“One of the pleasures of this position is that it affords me an opportunity to meet with our alumni and alumnae, to seek their input on the effectiveness of the department in training students well-suited to future success in academia, industry and management. Their input and generous support has been invaluable in helping to provide the highest quality education for our students, shaping the directions of current departmental innovations, and attracting students and faculty of incredibly high quality, who are the strength of the department.”

–W. Eric L. Grimson, September 2008

We at EECS extend our thanks to the generous donors listed below who made gifts to the Department this year. We have attempted to list all donors of $100 or more to EECS for Fiscal year 2008 (July 1, 2007-June 30, 2008), unless anonymity was requested. Although care has been taken in the preparation of this list, some errors or omissions may have occurred; for these we extend our sincere apologies. If you designated your gift to the EECS Department and your name does not appear here or is incorrectly listed, please bring the error to our attention. All donor recognition categories are exclusive of corporate matching gifts. [*deceased]
