AEST Capital Campaign Continues
The AEST department is embarking on an external fundraising campaign for equipment and facilities in order to maintain the health and vitality of the department, to provide space for growth, and to help keep tuition affordable for all students. Plans are to construct annex space that would allow us to teach Construction courses on campus and to provide for additional project and research space for the department. The university will match the first $50,000 raised dollar for dollar, and planning for the new facility can begin once we reach the $100,000 mark. So, be a Stud (or a Studess) or maybe even more! While contributions are welcome at any level, some unique funding levels have been established.
