Gifts to the Civil and Environmental Engineering annual fund are vital in sustaining our core mission – creating and sharing knowledge and providing the best educational experience possible for our students. Your gift will enhance our efforts to provide a transformational learning experience for our students, both inside and outside of the classroom, by:

  • Ensuring that faculty and students have the resources needed for modern learning experiences that provide greater flexibility, enhance comprehension and intellectual development, and develop practical skills that translate to the work place.  Our initiative in blended learning in the core curriculum and our integrated capstone experience that engages our students and practitioners are examples of the impact that gifts have on undergraduate learning.

  • Ensuring that we can recruit and retain world-class faculty, particularly in our strategic research emphases in water, mobility, infrastructure and energy.

  • Supporting efforts to update and enhance laboratories to provide students and faculty with exceptional opportunities for hands-on experiential learning and to provide the facilities needed to develop partnerships with industry in teaching and research.

In their own words, CEE alumni describe their donations to the College of Engineering.


  • Andrew Schaeve — “I regularly give back to the Concrete Canoe Team so that current and future students can have the same opportunities to build the long-lasting relationships that I was provided.”
  • Scott Kinnamon — “The teaching and research that take place in the college and across the university will truly change our lives for the better.”
  • Dan Gilbert — “Simple gratitude."
  • Michael Davy - "No one is in a better position to recognize the value of UW-Madison than alumni. That's where the support needs to start. We view our support as 'pay back,' not a 'give back.'"
