Uthlauts Establish Professorship in Chemical Engineering

George and Dorothy Uthlaut of Houston, Tex., have announced their commitment to establish the George E. and Dorothy Stafford Uthlaut Endowed Professorship in the Department of Chemical Engineering as their pledge to Campaign Auburn: The Next Generation.
The gift will result in an endowment to recognize faculty who provide a strong commitment to student instruction and a dedication to quality research in chemical engineering.
"At a time in the College of Engineering when it is difficult to find the funds for increases in faculty salaries, the commitment made by George and Dot Uthlaut gives the college the ability to reward deserving faculty members who stand out among their colleagues," Dean William Walker said.
"In order for us to remain competitive with other universities and have a quality faculty, it is important that we increase the number of endowed professorships at Auburn University."
Uthlaut is a 1954 chemical engineering graduate. After a long and successful career with Exxon, he retired from the company in 1986. In 1987, Uthlaut came out of retirement to work with Enron Oil and Gas Company as senior vice president in operations. He has a long history of involvement with Auburn University, and currently serves as a member of the Auburn Alumni Engineering Council, which serves as an advisory group to the dean.
