“I have supported SMU every year I’ve been an employee. Being in DEA, I see firsthand the impact gifts of any size can make—from programming to capital projects. I don’t really like to think of my donations as giving back; I like to think of them as helping to move something forward. I like the fact that I can choose exactly where to direct my support. Although all my time as an employee has been at the Lyle School of Engineering, I have supported the Band Hall and scholarships in the Cox School In addition to engineering designations. I want the University to be the best it can be and think SMU’s quality is important to the city of Dallas as well as to my immediate family.” – Ann Fielder
