Phillips 66 continues support of Cornell Engineering initiatives
Phillips 66 - an energy manufacturing and logistics company with businesses in refining, midstream, chemicals, and marketing and specialties – is extending its support of various initiatives at Cornell Engineering through a $50,000 gift. The company has generously supported the college with annual gifts totaling $300,000 since 2014.
John Rossettie ’90, human resources business partner manager for corporate staffs and Cornell Executive Focal at Phillips 66, visited Cornell Engineering in October to meet with leaders and beneficiaries of the company’s funding.
The 2018 gift includes support for engineering curriculum, student project teams, undergraduate research, and Cornell chapters of diversity organizations such as the Society of Women Conference, National Society of Black Engineers, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, and the Society of Women Engineers.
