Make a difference to the future of Ole Miss Engineering – you can help advance our students, faculty and facilities
We’ve got 120 years of engineering excellence here at the University of Mississippi. Our graduates have gone on to excel in organizations ranging from Ergon to Exxon, from NASA to Nissan. Our research is helping to improve our country’s infrastructure and drive innovation in healthcare and space exploration.
But, mostly, we are proud of our network of alumni. In whatever field they choose, they demonstrate that the technical expertise and personal skills gained at Ole Miss make a successful engineer. You can make sure that we continue down this path.
1. Provide financial support to our students
You can choose how you want to enrich the engineering student population. Just talk with us about how you’d like to direct your contribution – you could attract high academic achievers or support a specific department. Or you could encourage minority students or those joining us from community college. Or maybe you’d like to help those who couldn’t attend Ole Miss Engineering without financial support.
2. Give students practical experience
You can give our students real-world experience by bringing them into your organization for a semester or two through an internship or co-op. If you prefer, you can provide financial support to strengthen this essential program of activity.
3. Endow a faculty or chair position
You can provide top-notch education for our student body by sponsoring faculty or academic programs.
|Chair||$2 million and above|
|Professor||$1 million and above|
|Director, lecturer or scholar||$500,000 and above|
|Lecture series||$50,000 and above|
|Excellence in Teaching||$25,000 and above|
4. Enhance our labs and buildings
You can make sure that our teaching and research facilities meet the needs of today’s students. We want to inspire learning and innovation by providing interactive classrooms and up-to-date labs. As a reference, we consider 25% of the cost of a new building as the minimum for a naming gift.
