Notre Dame gets $35 million from alumnus Corbett

The future Corbett Family Hall is part of the $400 million project to add 800,000-square feet of academic and student life buildings on campus. Construction started in November.

Corbett, who is president and CEO of Florida-based Concorde Cos., earned a bachelor's degree in history from Notre Dame in 1960. He later earned a business degree from Harvard.
