Loyal Friend of Michigan Engineering
John Tishman (BSE EE '46, DEng hon. '00), an honorary co-chair of progress & promise: 150th Anniversary Campaign, is a true friend of Michigan Engineering, and the consequences of that relationship are visible throughout the College – in bricks-and-mortar contributions, in the classroom, and in leadership that has energized and guided the College of Engineering for decades.
Tishman, who received the College of Engineering's Alumni Society Medal in 1998 and an honorary degree in 2000, has a reputation for generosity far beyond the Michigan Engineering campus. he serves on the Board of Directors of Carnegie Hall. he helped establish Camp Central Park, a summer educational outreach program for youth, and has served on the boards of the Ronald McDonald House, New York Medical Center and Pratt Institute. the New York Landmarks Conservancy named Ttishman a "Living Landmark." And he's received the historic Business Achievement Award from the Museum of the City of New York.
