The Kent Seminar Series is sponsored by the Paul F. Kent Memorial Fund, established in 1977 to support transportation engineering education.

The Kent Seminar Series is named after University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering standout Paul Kent.

Paul Kent, a 1920 alumnus of UIUC’s civil engineering program, held the highest regard for the civil engineering education he received. He became a civic service in Illinois and the surrounding states.

Kent was the founder and president of the University of Illinois Civil Engineering Alumni Association, and he was the recipient of the U of I Loyalty Award and the Civil Engineering Distinguished Alumnus Award.
