Meet Tim and Sharon Taylor
With an eye to the future, Tim Taylor and his wife, Sharon, made a significant investment in the Carl R. Ice College of Engineering, naming the Tim Taylor Department of Chemical Engineering. This investment will empower the department to recruit and retain top faculty and the best students, and provide flexible funding for department leaders to take advantage of emerging opportunities.
