Whiteley Faculty Scholar
In the mid ’90s he and Elaine – a 1953 College of Home Economics graduate – both served on the committee that led the $40 million expansion of the Valley Library. The Whiteleys generously contributed to the library initiative and an endowment in materials science. They provided seed funding for a summer program that gives undergraduates the opportunity to conduct research early in their college career. They also supported a physics lecture series honoring Elaine’s late father, Dr. Edwin Yunker, who served on the OSU faculty.
After Ben passed away in 2017, the Ben & Elaine Whiteley Faculty Scholar Fund for Teaching Excellence was established through his estate to support great teachers who are advancing teaching and learning excellence in support of increased student success.
