CEF Board

The CEF was established in 1975 to support Oregon State University’s School of Civil and Construction Engineering and its Construction Engineering Management program. The CEF board is made up of leaders in the construction industry and serves as the philanthropic arm for the school, supporting students, staff, faculty, and programs.

CEF Purpose

The purpose of the CEF shall be to secure new resources and expand existing resources to enhance or initiate programs at Oregon State University which will be beneficial to the construction industry, the public that it serves, and students who are preparing for professional careers in the construction industry.

Annual Hal Pritchett CEF Golf Tournament

Each September, the school and CEF hold this annual fundraising event, which brings faculty, staff, students, alumni, and industry partners together to raise funds to support the school and CEM student scholarships.
