History

The passing of one of Florida Institute of Technology’s most recognizable and beloved faculty members, Susan Stackpoole, prompted her husband, Ken Stackpoole, dean of the College of Aeronautics and vice president for aviation programs, to establish an endowed fund to further the mission started by his wife.

“As a teacher for our online programs, Susan understood the value of such programs and wanted to see them grow,” Stackpoole said. “This endowment will enhance our offerings here in aeronautics.”The Susan Stackpoole Endowed Fund for College of Aeronautics Faculty, Programs and Lab Enrichment will support efforts throughout the college, including expanding the college’s graduate online offerings."
