Olivet College receives $50,000 contribution from Microsoft
Jul 31, 2007

Olivet College recently received a $50,000 contribution from Microsoft on behalf of one of its 2007 Technical Recognition Award winners, Dave Cutler, a 1965 Olivet alumnus. The funds will be used in support of Olivet’s Mathematics and Computer Science Department.

The award recipients were acknowledged by their peers for their extraordinary achievement, leadership and impact in the high-tech industry. The donation embraces the philosophy of giving at Microsoft Corporation, and was given to Olivet in acknowledgement of Cutler’s passion for and support of the college.

A native of DeWitt, Cutler is a noted software engineer and designer with Microsoft and holds more than 20 patents. After arriving at Microsoft in 1988, he launched the Windows NT group and has since led the development of three major releases of the product. In addition to leading the Windows 2000 team, Cutler contributed to the architecture of all parts of the system. In recognition of his significant contributions to the field, Cutler was awarded membership in the National Academy of Engineering in 1993.
