Private Support

Recently, my son Adam spent a year living and studying in Spain. Though he had learned Spanish, his mastery of the language was nowhere near the level of a native speaker. As a result, his first few months in the country yielded a few difficult and sometimes disappointing experiences.

But those experiences are among the aspects of living abroad that have effected positive changes in Adam. His first weeks in Spain taught him to adapt. They taught him to compromise, communicate and navigate. He forever will be a world traveler—and he will be a world traveler with the confidence to go anywhere and do anything.

During the course of his year in Spain, Adam met people whom I know will become lifelong friends. He learned about their culture, their language, their traditions and their lives. Those things have become a part of his life, too. They have changed the way he views the world—and how he fits into that global community.

Likewise, many College of Engineering students take advantage of programs that enable them to be more active global citizens. They know that, in school, as well as in the workforce, they will have colleagues, clients, collaborators or suppliers in cities around the world. They are adding cross-cultural communications and collaboration skills to the set of tools they acquire in their engineering education. With gifts from our alumni and industry partners, the college is continuing to expand its efforts to provide them meaningful study-abroad educational experiences.

Equally as important is attracting the best faculty, staff and students to work and study in the College of Engineering. Gifts in this area have a somewhat domino effect: Prestigious professorships enable the college to lure talented faculty—or to retain and recognize outstanding professors. They, in turn, draw the best, brightest graduate students who ultimately take groundbreaking University of Wisconsin-Madison engineering ideas and technologies to all corners of the globe.

Your contributions truly do a world of good. On behalf of Directors of Development Kelly De Haven and Brad Jolin, I thank you for supporting the College of Engineering.
