Academic Success

Sunderland Foundation supports academic success at K-State’s College of Engineering.

The Sunderland Foundation of Overland Park, Kansas, has given a gift of $200,000 to the College of Engineering at Kansas State University.

This gift supports the college’s Academic Success Center and provides for the Sunderland Foundation Faculty Advisor Office Suite in the newly renovated engineering complex.

“The Sunderland Foundation recognizes the outstanding work being done by Kansas State University in the field of engineering,” said Kent Sunderland, president of the Sunderland Foundation. “By supporting the Academic Success Center, we hope to support those students who have chosen engineering as their career and help them reach their goals as students at K-State.”

Darren Dawson, dean of the College of Engineering, expressed his thanks for the Sunderland Foundation’s continued support. “The Sunderland Foundation has a long history of support for higher education at K-State,” he said. “Their most recent gift to the college in support of our Academic Success Center is one more example of their generosity and belief in putting forth the best educational experience possible for our future graduates in engineering and computer and construction sciences.”
