LETTER FROM THE CHAIR
Dear alumni, students, friends and families,
Many exciting things are in the works, and many of you are an integral part of those efforts. I want to thank all of you who have contributed toward the full funding for the Lou Edwards Endowed Chair in Chemical Engineering. We have made some excellent progress this fall, with the class chairs and matching challenges, and have a strong finish in sight for spring. View progress updates on the Lou Edwards Endowed Chair in Chemical Engineering website.
Thanks to the generous lead gift from LifeLast Inc. (alumni Jeff Buratto, Mark Buratto and Kit Harper), we began the clean-up and clear-out stage of the senior lab design space (BEL 347) this summer and will continue demolition, repairs and upgrades again next summer, when this academic year’s course activities have ended.
Enjoy reading the highlights of our student and faculty teaching and research accomplishments, and I hope you had a safe and wonderful holiday season! Warm regards from Moscow, Idaho!
