A Clark School Giving Priority

In Brief

The new Keystone Program encourages the school's best faculty members to teach our most fundamental courses. Faculty members are selected from throughout the school, given renewable three-year appointments with a base salary increase and discretionary funds to support their activities, and are assisted by additional support personnel. Courses are closely reviewed to achieve academic excellence and high student interest. Funding has been contributed to launch the program; substantial new resources are needed to expand it to all freshman and sophomore courses.


Keystone brings beginning engineers an enhanced educational experience, reinforces and recognizes outstanding teaching, and serves as a national model for increasing engineering student retention and graduation rates.

Giving Opportunities

Your gift can increase the impact of the Keystone Program in the following ways:

  • Program naming: your gift will provide a financial foundation for the program and independence into the future
  • Support for personnel: your gifts to name professorships, assistantships, and distinguished adjunct professors will allow us to add personnel and extend the program into more courses
  • Support for program facilities and equipment will raise the level and range of our capabilities in the classroom and beyond.

How to Participate

We encourage you to learn more about the Keystone Program by visiting one of our Keystone courses, or discussing the program with a Keystone professor or Clark School development officer.
