Recent impact of Annual Giving support:
- The recruitment of some of the finest junior faculty in the country: Dan Gianola in Materials Science, Andreas Haeberlen in Computer and Information Science and Arjun Raj in Bioengineering.
- New initiatives to improve the advancement of women in engineering. These student-run programs, like Penn GEMS and Society of Women in Engineering (SWE), help to recruit and retain women throughout their engineering education.
- Support of both Penn's Electric Racing Team and the Red & Blue Racing Team. The first non-solar car, "Project Renegade" moved under its own power on May 15, 2010. And the Formula SAE car placed 15th in its competition, the team's best showing to date.
- New equipment for the Wolf Nanofabrication Facility and the renovations of Electrical and Systems labs 212 and 216.
