Allen and Constance Ford established the Ford Visiting Professor Program at Case Western Reserve University to enhance and highlight the programming of the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME). The department is regularly ranked among the nation’s top biomedical engineering programs by U.S. News and World Report.
The Ford Visiting Professor Program at Case Western Reserve has enabled BME to bring to campus—to our students, faculty and university community—scientists and business leaders on the cutting edge of biomedical engineering and related sciences.
Allen Ford has been a member of Case Western Reserve University’s Board of Trustees since 1976, serving as vice chair from 1985 to 1987 and chair from 1987 to 1992. He earned an MS in engineering administration from Case Institute of Technology in 1964, and received the University Medal, Case Western Reserve’s highest honor, in 1994. His late wife, Constance Ford, received an MA degree from Western Reserve University in 1953.
