Financial Support

The Leadership Academy is supported by a variety of individual and corporate gifts and operates outside of state funding. Giving by individuals and organizations is critical to its continued success. The academy invests approximately $2,000 in each student who participates in the program. This investment covers travel, lodging, and meals at retreats, professional development activities, educational materials, limited capstone project materials, and graduation expenses.

We would appreciate your partnership as we move forward with our mission to equip future engineering, engineering technology, and construction management professionals with essential leadership skills. The intent is to raise funds for a Leadership Academy Endowment that is large enough to maintain and improve the quality of the existing program.
