Bruce (BSE CEE ’82) and Stephanie Dorfman recently provided an additional gift to supplement the Bruce and Stephanie Dorfman Scholarship in the College of Engineering. This scholarship provides need-based support to full-time undergraduate students who are first generation in their family to attend college or who are students who have overcome substantial educational or economic obstacles. This gift qualified for the University’s Bicentennial Opportunity Matching Initiative.

He is the 2007 recipient of the College of Engineering’s Alumni Merit Award in Civil and Environmental Engineering.
