POTSDAM — Turner Construction Co. of New York City is donating $150,000 to Clarkson University to support the school’s construction engineering management program.

Turner employs more than 5,000 people and has 46 offices in the U.S. and 18 different countries. With the donation, Shawn Rosenberger, vice president and general manager of Turner Construction in San Diego and a Clarkson alumnus, will serve on the advisory board for the school’s construction engineering management (CEM) program.

The program provides education in the design, planning, construction, and management of infrastructure such as highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, railroads, buildings, pipelines, dams, and utilities.

“We are particularly gratified by Turner Construction Co.’s support of CEM since it builds on our existing academic alliance,” Clarkson President Tony Collins said in a news release. “CEM courses have been taught at Clarkson for more than 30 years, but we’ve seen a four-fold increase in students focusing on this area in the last five years.”
