April 27, 2012

Purdue University will use a $10 million anonymous gift to help build a facility dedicated to encouraging student excellence and leadership.

The donation announced Friday by Purdue President France Cordova will help build the $30 million Center for Student Excellence and Leadership. The center was suggested by a team of students, faculty and staff that studied student needs as part of the "launching tomorrow's leaders" component of Purdue's New Synergies strategic plan

Cordova said the building is a critical element of the Student Success Corridor, an area of campus that creates a bridge between residential and academic life. The area includes residence halls, the recreational sports center, dining courts, Black Cultural Center and fraternity and sorority houses.
