The University of Michigan-Dearborn (UM-Dearborn) has received a $1 million donation for their Engineering Lab Building project from Ronald and Eileen Weiser. This is the largest donation to date on the $90 million dollar project.

 

“We are grateful to the Weisers for their leadership gift and the vision and commitment it demonstrates to the future of engineering education at UM-Dearborn,” says Daniel Little, chancellor of University of Michigan-Dearborn. “This project will advance our academic programs and research capabilities, while placing our campus on a trajectory to sustained growth and excellence for generations to come.”

 

The Weisers currently serve as vice chairmen of the Victors for Michigan campaign and are veteran donors to the University of Michigan. Ronald Weiser, founder of McKinley Inc., previously served as the U.S. Ambassador to the Slovak Republic. Eileen Wesier, board member of Michigan State Education, has also served on the National Assessment Governing Board.

 

“This new facility advances the mission of the University of Michigan. It represents our commitment to outstanding engineering research and education for the benefit of our students, communities and industries throughout the region,” says Mark Schlissel UM’s president. “We are grateful to Ron and Eileen Weiser for their leadership commitment to this important project and their longstanding support of the university.”

 

Construction for the lab is expected to begin in spring 2018, and UM-Dearborn will name the Weiser Family Atrium in recognition of the donation.
