Engineering and Computer Science Programs That Stand Out
Microsoft CEO and UWM Alum Satya Nadella and His Wife Anu Donated $2M to UWM to Support Diversity in Tech
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella (’90 MS Computer Science) and his wife Anu donated $2 million to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in June 2021 to create the Fund for Diversity in Tech Education at UWM. The fund supports efforts to recruit, retain and graduate undergrads from marginalized and underserved communities, preparing them with the skills to pursue careers in computer science, data science and information technology.
