$8 million awarded to university social sciences programs
April 16, 2013
Colleges across the nation have found a way to fund their various programs and projects. Some primarily use tuition, while others tend to rely more on donations from alumni or government initiatives.
Recently, the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mendel Foundation gave an $8 million award to Ohio's Case Western Reserve University. The money will be put toward various programs in social work, leadership and community engagement initiatives. A portion of the gift will go to renovating the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, which will be renamed the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, while the rest will be used to name a dean for the school.
"We believe in the mission and achievements of Case Western Reserve's programs in social work, leadership and community engagement," Morton Mandel explained at a campus event, according to Case Western Reserve's Daily newspaper. "We look forward to even greater accomplishments in the preparation of leaders who make a meaningful difference in the world."
