TSU CoE “Mighty 100”

TSU_CoE_Mighty_100_logo.jpgTSU CoE "Mighty 100" was the first endowment-funding program initiated by the Tennessee State University CoE Alumni Chapter. The reason for TSU CoE "Mighty 100" is to establish a "core" group of 100 CoE alumni which will:


  1. support on-going giving to the college, with a gift of $1,000 being a starting point; 

  2. commit to give $1,000 on a annual basis;

  3. become critical and active "advocates" for the CoE and influence others to give, and

  4. become references for the CoE by their gift as a critical level of commitment to the CoE and the Tennessee State University CoE Alumni Endowment.

All of the TSU CoE "Mighty 100" donor names will go down in the history of the Tennessee State University as beloved alumni and supporters that had the 'future-sight' to establish an endowment for the Tennessee State University College of Engineering, Technology and Computer Science. The 2005-2007 roll-call for the TSU CoE "Mighty 100" are listed below.
