New SCE Student Collaborative Space Dedicated


A $59,000 gift from Burns & McDonnell and UMKC SCE alumni who are employees of the engineering firm, is responsible for the new “student collaboration space” which was officially opened at a dedication reception on June 5.

The “Student Collaboration Space,” named in honor of Burns & McDonnell, transformed a windowless classroom and will serve as a new front “room” entrance to the main, third floor of UMKC’s Flarsheim Hall, the home to the School of Computing and Engineering.  SCE Dean Kevin Truman and Development Director Minda Mason worked closely with Burns & McDonnell, especially our alum and SCE Advisory Board member, Jim Hogan, Senior Vice President of Operations in the Transmission & Distribution Division, to assure the completion of this project.
