Created in 2008, the Institute for Energy Efficiency today includes 50 faculty and 120 graduate and postdoctoral students collaborating on energy-efficient technologies. It has quickly come to be considered among the elite university-based centers for such research. With the Henleys' donation, UCSB hopes to inspire additional philanthropy to complete the funding required for Henley Hall, plus support faculty recruitment and IEE operations.

"The Institute for Energy Efficiency is an excellent example of UCSB's interdisciplinary culture. Scientists here from many different disciplines collaborate to address large societal problems," said Pierre Wiltzius, the Susan and Bruce Worster Dean of Science. "This wonderful gift will help build a physical home for them to meet and translate their research into workable solutions."

The stature of UC Santa Barbara has grown significantly in recent years. For example, in 2011, Leiden University in the Netherlands published the results of a four-year study in which UC Santa Barbara was ranked seventh among the Top 500 world universities, and first among public universities, for research productivity and impact in the sciences and social sciences. In the recent National Research Council assessment of 31 doctoral programs at UCSB, nearly a third of the programs ranked in the range of the top five, and more than two-thirds in the range of the top 20, across all disciplines on campus. All five engineering doctoral programs ranked in the range of the top 10, with the materials program, the bedrock of IEE, ranking first in all ranges.

"As a college and a university, we must ensure that we are advancing the broad state of knowledge that's going to help us long-term, while also making sure that we are capitalizing on t
