Last week members of the AGC’s Education & Research Foundation, (Rupert Kotze, Rick Schmidt, Jim Parks, Steve Freckmann, Josh Halvorsen and Mike Fabishak) hosted representatives from Marquette University, MSOE and UWM for research grant proposals to help usher in a new era of hands-on construction-related tools in higher education.
The AGC-GM Education & Research Foundation was founded as a philanthropic organization in the 1970’s to promote construction industry education and research efforts. Since it was established, the E&R Foundation Board of Directors has awarded over $1 million in grants and scholarships to local schools and universities throughout southeastern Wisconsin. Additionally, the E&R Foundation provides research and development funding for initiatives related to the wellbeing and advancement of the construction industry.
The AGC has long been an invaluable educational resource for our industry. With CLC student chapters at MSOE, Marquette University, and UWM we help support the next generation of leaders via networking opportunities and local project tours.
