University of Arkansas alumnus Kevin Brown and his wife, Marie, have created an endowed department head chair within the College of Engineering thanks to a $3 million gift.
The Kevin W. and Marie L. Brown Department Head Chair in Chemical Engineering was established by the Houston couple and will benefit the Ralph E. Martin department of chemical engineering at the University of Arkansas.
Buddy Babcock, department head for chemical engineering, said in a news release the endowed gift is very timely, because the department now stands at a crossroads with a new department head search underway.
“Kevin and Marie are making a difference by providing the resources we need to attract and retain a proven leader for the Ralph E. Martin department of chemical engineering,” he said.
