CEC alum establishes fund to immediately provide department needs

Jeff Milliken is a three-time graduate of the College of Engineering Computing, with his B.S. in 1989, master’s in 1994 and Ph.D. in 2011.

He established a Civil and Environmental Engineering Discretionary Fund for Department Priorities with an initial $5,000 investment. This fund will provide access to money for departmental needs like equipment and travel costs.

“Our duty of giving back is really important to me. I have a duty and responsibility as a practicing engineer to give back to the university that helped me achieve,” Mulliken says. “It’s an interesting dynamic because as we support the university, we’re improving and safeguarding our community.”
