Herff 50th Celebration 

Reaching the 50-year mark in an organization calls for celebration – not just a celebration of the longevity, but of the thousands of lives who have touched and been touched by the organization.

Fifty years ago, on February 7, 1964, the Tennessee State Board of Education approved a resolution authorizing then– Memphis State University to accept a gift from Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Herff to establish a master's degree program in engineering science. In May 1965, the Board approved the undergraduate engineering program – and so began the Herff College of Engineering.

On April 9, 2016, we celebrated the Herff College's successful completion of our 50 Year Campaign. View photos of our Campaign Celebration and Awards dinner.
