Tuskegee University receives $20 million gift

Anonymous donation will support STEM programs, other enhancements

Tuskegee University has received its second $20 million gift in less than four years.

The gift from an anonymous donor will support the university’s STEM programs and a variety of campus enhancements.

The money will support a faculty leadership position, an endowed scholarship, student affairs and campus security staffing, development of STEM programs and applied research.

“This gift will allow us to invest in our students, faculty, programs and infrastructure, enabling us to enhance our academic reputation, enrich the student experience and continue our work to reach milestones within our strategic plan,” said Dr. Charlotte P. Morris, Tuskegee University president. “It will provide additional resources for us to implement vital initiatives, further securing the campus, and fostering a more dynamic community.”

The money will also be used to fulfill a United Negro College Fund pooled endowment fund match.
