Education is so important to Dr. Simon Lee, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of STG, Inc. (STG) that in June he and his wife Anna made a $1 million endowment to establish the “KU & GWU Research Collaboration Program.” Engineering faculty and graduate students from Korea University (KU) and George Washington University (GWU) will now have the opportunity to study alongside each other as a result of this endowment.
The gift will create the Simon Lee College of Engineering Endowment for faculty and graduate students, and will encourage collaboration between the two universities through joint research, workshops, and technical exchanges.
Dr. Lee, who received a B.S. in Industrial Engineering from Korea University, an M.S. in Systems Engineering from GWU, and an Honorary Doctorate from Korea University said “the foundation of the success I achieved today is a result of the education I received from the two universities. I believe this endowment will provide a better educational environment for talented students in the future.”
Dr. Lee first established an exchange program between the two universities that focused on undergraduate students with a $1 million endowment to GWU in 2010. The success of that program and the strong academic bridges Simon and Anna witnessed being created led them to continue their work by expanding the program to faculty and graduate students in the future.
