UPDATE: Dr. Saiidi pledges $50,000 matching gift
The Civil and Environmental Engineering program at the University of Nevada, Reno has been evolving into a premium entity in the past 40 years with substantial national and international recognition because of the rigor, determination, and tireless work of its faculty, its ever-expanding state-of-the-art facilities, numerous externally funded grants, and the internal support at UNR.
The Saiidis believe that recruiting internationally recognized, energetic, visionary faculty is the key element of the continued qualitative and quantitative growth of the program. The Saiidi Professorship is a vehicle towards that goal. Professor Saiidi and his wife, Sohila, fully appreciate the importance of strengthening this vehicle. To this end, they have pledged to match any donations made to the Saiidi Professorship endowment of up to $50,000 for 2020.
Give by December 31, 2020 to have your gift matched
