Giving Tuesday


Dear Chemical and Biological Engineering alumni,

The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering is excited to participate in CU Engineering’s fall giving campaign! Buff Engineers Give Back recognizes and celebrates the many ways alumni like you support our students and faculty.

Buff Engineers Give Back runs through Giving Tuesday on Nov. 29. We need your help to support our department!

Our goal this year is to help fund and expand our innovative LearnChemE platform. This free online resource has provided students and online users high-quality chemical engineering instruction since its launch in 2010. Our department’s leadership of this initiative has given us a worldwide reputation for excellence in chemical and biological engineering education, while also helping our students succeed.  

We need your support to maintain LearnChemE as a leading resource for chemical and biological engineering education. Your gift could do the following:
  • $100 supports current CU students in preparing a new, high-quality screencast that explains traditional and emerging concepts in chemical engineering.
  • $1,000 provides for the development of an interactive simulation that allows students to experiment with course content via realistic models of process equipment and systems. 
  • $10,000 enables major website upgrades that help students identify the content they need to succeed in our demanding curriculum.

Dean Keith Molenaar has offered a challenge match to the three departments with the most individual donations. And to make things even better, Dennis (MechEngr’62) and Kathleen Reul are offering a match of $15,000 when the college reaches our goal of 200 unique donors this month. Will you help us get there by becoming a donor?

Alumni like you help shape the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering every day. Your support is critical to our success and we thank you for including CU Engineering in your giving.

With gratitude,

Will Medlin
Department Chair
Chemical and Biological Engineering
