“People see gifts of that size and say, ‘What can I do?’” But it’s important that people try to give at any level. If someone only can give $500, enough of those add up—together, you can endow a chair.”- Dan Lease (ADL ’71)

“This gift will allow us to enter into an unprecedented collaboration between the College of Arts and Sciences and Case School of Engineering,” says Jim Bader, director of CSME, which will become part of the Gelfand STEM Center. “What we’re proposing is something we don’t see at other universities—to deal with STEM as an integrated area instead of an ‘S,’ a ‘T,’ an ‘E’ and an ‘M.’ This is really how it should be done in the education process.”
