Clark School Faculty Make Rain
The university has honored nearly 60 Clark School faculty as "Rainmakers"—those who bring in top research dollars.
The annual Rainmakers Luncheon recognizes university faculty who bring in at least $500,000 in research money in a single fiscal year.
Of the 222 professors honored at the 7th annual luncheon last month, more than 25 percent were Clark School faculty.
Among the programs singled out for bringing in top dollars were the Clark School's Third-Generation Reusable Launch Vehicle Technology (aerospace engineering; $3 million); the I-95 Corridor Coalition (civil and environmental engineering; $2.6 million); and the Cold Neutron Scattering and Spectroscopy program (materials science and engineering; $2.4 million).
In total, the Clark School's rainmakers brought in more than $76 million for the university in fiscal year 2005 (total rainmaker funding brought in for the University: $211 million).
