Peter B. Stifel Geology Senior Thesis Endowment

In June 2017, Associate Emeritus Professor of Geology Peter B. Stifel, Ph.D. ‘64 established the Peter B. Stifel Geology Senior Thesis Endowment for the Department of Geology in the College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences (CMNS). This endowment makes possible such resources as travel funds for field work and conferences, lab equipment, supplies and general programmatic support. 

During his time at the University of Maryland, Peter B. Stifel became the proud father of the Geology Senior Thesis program. Stifel believes that the senior thesis “provides students significant experience in personal growth, specially in the form of responsibility and self-confidence that can enhance not only their university experience but their professional careers and later life.” Geology alums state that the senior thesis was the most valuable part of their undergraduate coursework. Gifts to this fund further the research and discovery of the University of Maryland’s Department of Geology and provide valuable experiences for graduating  seniors.
