To date donations of just over $26,000 have been raised toward our $50k challenge from Altra Industrial Motion. Altra Industrial, led by President and CEO Carl Christenson ('82 B.S., '84 M.S., Mechanical Engineering), has made a substantial challenge grant that will double every gift to the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) Department’s Innovation Shop up to $50,000. Mr. Christenson has been a longtime supporter of the College of Engineering and a personal annual donor to the undergraduate scholarship program within the college. What his challenge means is that your gift today will have twice the impact on future engineers and the practical experience they get in the Innovation Shop. For every dollar you give, Altra Industrial will contribute a dollar – doubling the funds that will help expand opportunities for students, and keeping the shop state-of-the-art. Step up and take the Altra Ultra Challenge!
