With construction of Sesquicentennial Hall underway, the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Foundation is offering alumni, friends, students, faculty, staff and corporate partners the opportunity to be a visible part of its engineering legacy by sponsoring an engraved paver along the walkways and patios surrounding Sesquicentennial Hall and Busby Hall – formerly Engineering Hall. 

Three sizes of pavers are available for sponsorship. Each sponsorship directly supports undergraduate research opportunities in UW-Platteville’s College of Engineering, Mathematics and Science. Participation in research is one of the most impactful opportunities students find at UW-Platteville, allowing them to build connections with faculty, clarify their area of interest, contribute their knowledge to solve real-world problems, and prepare for the workforce or continued education.  

“We are excited to provide an opportunity for our alumni and friends to contribute a tangible element to this historic building project, and even more excited about the great experiences that this initiative will create for students,” said Dr. Molly Gribb, dean of the College of EMS.   

Engraving the sponsored pavers is a learning opportunity for students in itself, as all pavers will be produced, by students, in the College of EMS shops. 

A limited number of Sesquicentennial Hall pavers are now available for sponsorship. For more information and to sponsor a paver, visit www.uwplatt.edu/sqh-paver
