Dear Chemical Engineering Alumni,

I do not have to tell you that Stanford Chemical Engineering is built on a foundation of excellence — you have personally contributed to that success. In keeping with that tradition, today’s faculty and students are directing their efforts toward solving some of the most profound technical challenges of our time — environmental sustainability, clean energy, and human health. We are preparing to move into our new home with a number of new faculty exploring novel research areas. Our future is exciting, but also expensive. Excellence and innovation usually are. To thrive during this new chapter, we have officially launched the Engineering Our Future fund and are asking for your support. Although we are a small alumni community, I am confident that together we can have a significant and lasting impact. Therefore, I hope you will accept my invitation to do two things. First, invest in the department during this pivotal time. Now, more than ever, your giving will provide the flexible funding that the faculty, students, and I need to seize opportunities and meet the needs for curriculum innovation, path-breaking research, and enhancements to student life. Secondly, I invite you to explore for yourself all that Stanford Chemical Engineering is today. We would welcome your engagement. Thank you for considering a gift to the Engineering Our Future fund.
