Robert and Glenda Johnson Collaboration Space
The Robert and Glenda Johnson Student Collaboration Space will communicate CEE’s commitment to diversity and invite students of all backgrounds – particularly the underrepresented population of students of color – to commit their talents and energy to the critical profession of civil and environmental engineering. In addition to lounge and table seating, art in the space will celebrate the beauty of Chicago’s south side, communicating non-verbally that students of all backgrounds are welcome in CEE at Illinois. CEE alumnus Rashod R. Johnson (BS 00, MS UIC 05), president and CEO at Ardmore Roderick in Chicago, shared this vision, and generously made a leadership gift to establish and name this student collaboration area in honor of his parents, Robert and Glenda. This space is fully funded..
