Chevron Corp. has continued its support of LSU and the College of Engineering by fulfilling a nearly $3 million pledge agreement made to the university in 2013, with the majority of that gift benefitting the expansion and renovation of Patrick F. Taylor Hall.
The College of Engineering’s portion of the donation, which totaled $2 million, was designated to create an engineering student academic support center, and a reservoir mechanics and rock and fluids property teaching laboratory in the Craft & Hawkins Department of Petroleum Engineering. The remaining money was directed to LSU's College of Science, the College of Human Sciences & Education, the E. J. Ourso College of Business, the LSU Olinde Career Center, and the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center.
"Chevron is pleased to be able to continue our support of the LSU College of Engineering with our recent gift to the Taylor Hall renovation initiative,” said Bill Hunter, manager of Chevron Corporation's University Partnership Program. "We believe that this gift will help advance the educational experience of LSU engineers and look forward to continuing our strong relationship with the university.”
Chevron has a longstanding relationship with LSU through its University Partnership Program. To date, the corporation has donated more than $11 million to the university and employed more than 600 university alumni around the world.
