Investing in the future

The Kummer Institute builds on S&T’s 150-year heritage of excellence in science and engineering education and research with a future focus on innovation and entrepreneurship. The institute is already serving as the catalyst for the university’s next 150 years of excellence in many ways.

To maximize the benefits of the Kummer gift, S&T will seek investments from donors, corporate partners, research sponsors, consortia members, and state and federal government partners. The Kummer Institute has the potential to grow Missouri's GDP by $703 million over 10 years, and by more than $2 billion over 25 years.

I owe much of my success to the education I received at Rolla. My Rolla experience taught me how to think, how to work hard and how to manage my own career. June and I believe in the mission of this great university, and that's why we have chosen to invest in S&T's future success. We believe that Missouri S&T's best days are ahead."
