CREATING AN INNOVATION ECOSYSTEM: OREGON TECH ADVANCEMENT CAMPAIGN
ROLE: WRITING, INTERVIEWING
The centerpiece of this campaign was a new Center for Excellence in Engineering and Technology, to be integrated with a fully renovated version of the extant Engineering building.
The good news was that the State of Oregon had committed significant funds to the undertaking. The challenge was that the state’s contribution was to arrive in the form of matching funds – i.e., Oregon Tech needed to raise $40 million in order to receive the state money.
Working closely with the office of advancement, we wove together Oregon Tech’s success stories with the goals of the campaign, and in so doing helped donors understand the role they could play in taking the strengths of the university to all-new heights
