Bicknell Corporation Supports Clarkson University
The Bicknell Corporation of Potsdam, N.Y., has made a generous gift to support the Clarkson Fund at Clarkson University.
“I am proud of Clarkson’s national rankings and recognition as a progressive technological University, as evidenced by student achievement and the success of Clarkson alumni," says Robert Bicknell, president of The Bicknell Corporation and a 1971 Clarkson alumnus. "Clarkson’s efforts to encourage regional collaboration and to serve as an economic development catalyst have provided great benefits to our local communities and the region.”
“This gift to the Clarkson Fund is the result of a long and fruitful relationship between the Bicknell Corporation and the University,” says Clarkson University President Tony Collins. "Their support demonstrates a belief in the value of a Clarkson education. We are grateful for their generous gift and confidence in Clarkson’s vision as partners in our region."
The Clarkson Fund helps to provide an exceptional education to 3,700 enterprising students, with critical investments in areas like new technology and laboratory equipment, academic program support, campus sustainability projects and financial aid to support student scholarships.
Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world’s pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
