Rose-Hulman Names Student Center After Late President Branam

The late President Matt Branam speaks at the opening of the Student Innovation Center in the fall of 2011.

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology has named its Student Innovation Center after late president Matt Branam. It will now be called the Branam Innovation Center.

“The facility will now forever represent President Branam’s commitment to innovation, and will inspire future Rose-Hulman students,” Interim President Robert Coons said in a statement.  “Honoring President Branam in this way was originally suggested by our students, and was met with unanimous support by our trustees.”

The center was opened in late fall as a place for students competition teams to collaborate and work on their projects such as the building of a fuel efficient vehicle for the national EcoCAR 2 competition.

Branam headed the effort to build the center. He died unexpectedly on April 20 after serving as the school’s president since 2009.
