CIM Program At MTSU Receives Building Campaign Donation from Irving Materials Inc.

The Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program announced that the School of Concrete and Construction Management at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) has received a company donation to their Building Campaign from Irving Materials Inc. With the help of this contribution, the school has reached 50 percent of its $5 million goal.

“As an employer of 14 CIM graduates between Tennessee, Kentucky and Indiana and nearly 50 summer interns, Irving Materials has always been a supporter of our program,” says Dr. Heather Brown, chair and professor, MTSU School of Concrete and Construction Management. “This gift will allow us to achieve 25 percent of the brick and mortar funding we need.”

A joint initiative between MTSU and leaders from the concrete industry, the CIM program provides students opportunities to enter a field that has a need for skilled professionals. MTSU integrates a technical education in concrete with the business and communication skills needed to advance in the industry.

“Irving Materials benefits from the efforts of CIM by employing graduates whose pride in their work make our company better every day,” says Irving Materials South President Kevin Swaidner. “This is in no small part due to the foundation they received at MTSU.”

“The new building at the School of Concrete and Construction is the first priority for the next statewide capital outlay funding cycle in July 2018,” says MTSU President Dr. Sidney McPhee. “Building proposals must show an industry match to the state investment, and with these gifts, we are nearing our goal.”
