The University of Tulsa has received a Chevron gift totaling $139,000. Officials from Chevron visited the TU campus on October 17 to present the contribution in support of TU programs and activities. Bill Hunter, manager, university affairs; Mark Hatfield (BS ’82), vice president, Gulf of Mexico business unit and university sponsor; Byron Dale, reservoir engineer and engineering recruiter; and Chuck Brown (JD ’15), landman recruiter, met with TU students and faculty including President Gerard Clancy, College of Engineering and Natural Sciences Dean James R. Sorem Jr. and Collins College of Business Dean Gale Sullenberger.
The team toured the new Chevron Learning Center in Keplinger Hall, TU’s largest academic building. The space, which features a large classroom, three laboratories and a workshop, is part of the multi-phase, multi-million-dollar renovation in Keplinger Hall.
“Chevron is a longtime supporter of our facilities and programs, and we appreciate the interest they take in our students,” Sorem said. “From internships to professional development opportunities and careers, Chevron helps our students and alumni succeed.”
The Chevron funding will be designated toward student scholarships, academic departments, petroleum engineering fellowships, student chapter organizations, career services for the Collins College of Business and services for student veterans. Nine TU students interned for Chevron during the summer of 2017.
