Giving Report

Dear McCormick alumni and friends,

As chairman of the Walter P. Murphy Society, I'd like to thank and recognize the many alumni, parents, and friends who have supported the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science during academic year 2005-06. We are grateful for the contributions and leadership of nearly 250 Murphy Society members and hundreds of other donors whose names are listed on the following pages. To those who are not currently Murphy members or donors, I extend a warm invitation to join us and make a gift this year to the McCormick Annual Fund.

As you might know, the Murphy Society honors the legacy of Walter P. Murphy, the benefactor whose gifts supported the construction of Northwestern's Technological Institute. Murphy Society members make annual gifts of $1,000 or more and have a unique opportunity to assist Dean Julio Ottino in making decisions to fund faculty and student projects through the Murphy Society Selection Committee. In past years the Murphy Society has encouraged the support of curriculum innovations such as Engineering First® and the Institute for Design Education and Applications (IDEA), as well as hands-on design projects such as the solar car competition.

Beginning with the new academic year, Murphy Society members are also being recognized as members of the Northwestern Leadership Circle. The Leadership Circle, a pan-university giving society, is composed of Northwestern's most loyal friends and alumni and offers members a number of unique benefits.

We are very grateful for your contributions to the McCormick School and to the broader Northwestern community. Your annual support of the McCormick Annual Fund enables the dean to respond to unanticipated needs that arise during the academic year and provides important resources that will help the school achieve new levels of excellence.
