Lockheed Martin Funds Keystone Professors


Lockheed Martin Information Technology has pledged $60,000 annually to Keystone: The Clark School Academy of Distinguished Professors.

Linda Gooden, president and CEO of Lockheed’s IT division and a member of the Clark School’s Board of Visitors, will present a check to the school later this month.

Gooden co-chairs the Board of Visitors Student Affairs Committee, which is tasked with improving undergraduate education and retention at the Clark School. The committee’s recommendations formed the basis for the Keystone program.

The program fosters exemplary undergraduate teaching skills and commitment to excellence in teaching fundamental engineering courses.

Keystone professors receive renewable three-year appointments with a base salary increase and discretionary funds to support their activities, and are assisted by additional support personnel in covered courses. Lockheed’s gift will support stipends for Keystone professors and undergraduate teaching assistantships.

The Clark School hopes to raise $350,000 annually to support the program.
