Boeing Corporate Ambassadors
Corporate Ambassadors are alumni and alumnae that pledge to stay connected to Rensselaer, champion Rensselaer at the workplace, and keep the value of a Rensselaer degree strong. The Corporate Ambassador community at Boeing is led by Kareem Muhammad ’01, Senior Manager, 737 Interiors Integration. The key goals of the group are to:
Grow the Rensselaer alumni and alumnae community at Boeing
Connect Boeing to the exceptional people and programs at Rensselaer that support Boeing’s key business priorities
Ensure all students have access to a Rensselaer education
Corporate Ambassador Challenge – Extended until 2π Giving Day on June 28
This year’s Corporate Ambassador Challenge brings unprecedented hardships, as it coincides with the global pandemic that is impacting all aspects of our lives – including those of our students, who will be continuing their instruction online for the remainder of the semester. Given these extenuating circumstances, we made the decision to extend the Rensselaer Corporate Ambassador Challenge until June 28, 2020 – 2π Giving Day (Tau Day).
Between now and 2π Giving Day on June 28, we are encouraging alumni at Boeing to support the Rensselaer Annual Fund. Your gift will provide critical support to our future alumni and alumnae as global leaders and will show our students just how strong this community is. The company with the highest giving participation among alumni and alumnae between now and June 28 will receive the Rensselaer Corporate Cup to display in their office for a full year.
Boeing alumni and alumnae donations will help support Rensselaer students in the following areas:
- Rensselaer Annual Fund (area of greatest need): Your gift will help our current generation of students complete their Rensselaer education, and allow them to become the future leaders in science, technology, and innovation. Gifts to the Annual Fund support the area of greatest need, one of our many athletics and scholarship programs, or student-specific funds, among several options.
- Student Relief Fund: Your support of the Student Relief Fund will provide critical support to students who are facing financial hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic and help cover the costs of travel expenses, meals, technology needs and other necessities as they continue their coursework.
- Boeing Scholars at Rensselaer: The goal of the Boeing Scholars program at Rensselaer is to attract and retain more students in technical degrees, with a particular focus on females and minorities, who are underrepresented in our technical workforce and represent an enormous untapped resource. Each year, The Boeing Company awards 10 scholarships to deserving Rensselaer students. Your gift will enable Boeing to fund an additional Boeing Scholar at Rensselaer.
