     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University recently received a donation of $25,000 from Contractors’ Educational Trust Fund to establish a Faculty Enhancement Fund in the Industrial and Engineering Technology Department. The funds will help department faculty attend workshops, training, industry meetings and conferences to keep them ahead of the technology and new trends in their fields of study. The contribution will also help support faculty research.
     This is not the first time the Contractors’ Educational Trust Fund has donated to Southeastern. In 2002, they established the Contractors Educational Trust Fund Professorship in Industrial Technology, now IET, to support professors.
