Academic & Research Center Naming Opportunities

From student interactive spaces to incubators for centers of excellence, opportunities exist to associate your name with a space in the Academic & Research Center. These spaces can be named to acknowledge the donor, to honor an individual, or to memorialize someone special. In addition to naming a specific space, all donors will be recognized at a central location. For more information on making a gift to the Russ College, visit the Office of Development or make a gift online.
