Science Center Generates Support
In October 2011, The Duke Endowment strongly demonstrated its support for the Science Center by pledging $25 million toward its construction. An additional $10-15 million is needed for technology, equipment, operating and endowment support to strengthen the STEM College programs and outreach to the community and region. A Science Center Campaign Cabinet, represented by distinguished alumni and friends from across the country, is leading the fundraising campaign for this initiative. The Science Center campaign includes several naming opportunities for the overall facility, classrooms, and even auditorium seating.
“We are excited about the Science Center and what it means to our students, alumni and the community,” said Sharon Harrington, assistant vice president for Institutional Advancement. “We are counting on our supporters – alumni, friends, foundations and corporations – to contribute to this effort and join us as we continue to transform the face of STEM education.”
