The McCormick School honored current and emeritus faculty members who are members of the National Academy of Engineering

Walter P. Murphy Society

Giving Report

The Murphy Society comprises dedicated alumni and other friends who make contributions of $1,000 or more during the fiscal year (September 1, 2004, to August 31, 2005) for unrestricted use by the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science.

These funds support innovative faculty-initiated projects to improve the undergraduate experience. In the past, funds have supported curriculum innovations such as Engineering First© and the Institute for Design Education and Applications and hands-on design projects such as the solar car competition. Murphy Society members are invited to attend one of the selection committee meetings held each fall in Evanston and the San Francisco Bay Area, or they can vote on proposal recommendations via the Murphy Society web site. This unique opportunity assists the dean in making decisions on worthy projects to fund for the year.

An asterisk (*) indicates members who have died.
