The Clarkson Roundtable
ENERGIZING Today...SHAPING Tomorrow
The New Clarkson Roundtable
The Clarkson Roundtable has long been a distinguished University symbol, recognizing annual leadership donors whose contributions help forge Clarkson’s path toward excellence. Now, as the University’s Evolution to Excellence (E2E) Campaign is accelerating, it’s time to revitalize The Clarkson Roundtable with new recognition, new member benefits, and new insider opportunities to learn about and influence the future of our university. Great progress is being made at Clarkson, and you can be part of the success through The Clarkson Roundtable.
YOUR INFLUENCE Now…
Every year, most Roundtable donors contribute to The Clarkson Fund. By doing so, they help promising students gain access to an exceptional Clarkson education. The Clarkson Fund delivers essential support for...
...the financial aid that nine out of ten Clarkson students need to stay in school
...state-of-the-art technology that allows our students and faculty to work at the forefront of discovery
...the academic distinction that is the core of the Clarkson experience
...sustainability programs that advance intelligent resource use
...the extra edge that challenges our Golden Knight athletes to drive forward and win
…AND IN THE Future
Your contribution also counts in the E2E Campaign’s drive toward its $225 million goal. Clarkson has always delivered exceptional education and innovative research paired with real-world opportunities, small-school personal attention, and unparalleled career preparation. E2E has added muscle, speed, reach, and reputation. Clarkson is leaping forward with enhanced academic and research programs, accelerated innovation, and broadened and deepened international perspective. We’re in the top tier of America’s best universities, and we’re climbing every year.
Consider this impressive evidence of what your university has achieved and where it’s headed: U.S. News & World Report recently placed Clarkson in its “tier one” list of best-value schools. The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazine named Clarkson to its 2013 list of “Top Undergraduate Schools for Entrepreneurship Programs,” ranking Clarkson 15 out of 2,000 schools. And PayScale’s annual survey of more than 1,000 colleges and universities reported that the average starting salary of Clarkson graduates is in the top 5 percent nationwide (even better than Harvard’s).
