Wochholz Endowment for Persons with Disabilities

Harold F. and Phyllis N. Wochholz established this endowment to provide the MSU Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities (RCPD) with a source of funding to market MSU as a university with an exceptional and sustained record of success in meeting the needs of persons with disabilities. Harold, a 1958 graduate of the College of Engineering and RCPD 2007 Outstanding Alumnus, identifies MSU's accessible facilities as instrumental to the attainment of his engineering degrees and to his success as an engineer and leader within a major aerospace corporation. Employing a passion to involve today's students with disabilities in a similar life-changing experience, Harold and Phyllis are defining an exciting future with increased awareness and opportunity, in turn, enhancing the MSU advantage for students with disabilities.

Together with the College of Engineering, the RCPD will develop a continuous promotional program that will encourage future students with a disability to consider MSU as their choice for higher education.

"I think back to the summer of 1955 when I could just barely get around on crutches, didn't have a formal education and needed a safe/nice place for my family, and MSU was there for us!"
-Hal Wochholz

"We sincerely hope that others will join us in supporting RCPD and establishing MSU as a university that extends excellence to human needs as well as education."
-Hal & Phyllis Wochholz
