Friends of Alec
Friends of Alec (FOA) is the annual fundraiser for the Cockrell School of Engineering. Alumni, friends and parents can designate their gift to the Department of Chemical Engineering to provide spendable resources.
“Friends of Alec is one of the most effective ways our community can make an immediate impact to help educate students,” said Department Chair Dr. Roger T. Bonnecaze. “Success of our alumni around the world plays a significant role in this department’s exceptional reputation. Thanks to our alumni for representing the university and our UTChE community in such a positive way, and for giving back in support of the education, experiences and people that helped shape their lives.”
Funds donated through FOA, designated to ChE, will contribute to the hiring of outstanding faculty, support of students in and out of the classroom, and enhancement of student lab space, among other vital initiatives.
