We have developed long-term partnership with several colleges and universities. Here are a few examples of our commitment to working with academic institutions.
Pennsylvania State University
Dean Meyers Memorial Scholarship
Dean Meyers was a civil engineer and a 20-year employee of the firm. He graduated from Penn State University with a degree in civil engineering in 1975. A victim of the Washington-area sniper attacks; he was shot and killed at a Manassas gas station after working late one evening in October 2002.
Our company established a memorial scholarship in Meyers' honor in 2002. We have matched the many generous contributions of his co-workers, clients, associates, and friends; and the fund is now a permanent endowed scholarship at Penn State University.
Oklahoma State University
Our long-term relationship with OSU and our commitment to the fields of engineering, architecture, and technology allow us the opportunity to give back by creating this permanant endowment fund.
We established this scholarship in honor of the victims at Virginia Tech in the spring of 2007. Our owners matched the many generous contributions from employees, clients, associates, and friends; and the fund is now a permanent endowed scholarship.
Danville Community College
This endowed scholarship provides financial assistance to a DCC student seeking transfer to George Mason University or Virginia Tech (first choice); the University of Virginia, Old Dominion University, Virginia Commonwealth University, and/or Virginia Military Institute (second choice); or is an engineering student enrolled in the Associate in Applied Science program seeking entrance into the engineering field directly after graduating from DCC (third choice).
LDDI Corporate Sponsorship
We partner with The Land Development Design Initiative at Virginia Tech. This sponsorship not only helps promote land development design education and careers but also facilitates the network between students and our employees.
Each year members of our staff participate in a number of presentations to student-run organizations and academic departments. Presentations feature our relevant projects, company information, and the latest industry news. Students learn about aspects of the working environment that they may not see in their classes. To see how you can get a Dewberry practitioner to present at your university, please contact Taylor Davis.
Several of our industry experts are part-time faculty members at various colleges and universities such as the University of Mary Washington and the University of Maryland.
