Cal Poly expands with $110m gift

An alumnus’s $110-million donation will help California Polytechnic State University expand its mathematics and science programs.

The gift is the largest in the California State University system’s history. A press release said the donation would be used to build a new interdisciplinary research center, as well as to hire more teaching staff.

A portion of the gift is also devoted to research stipends and new equipment for laboratories, as well as student scholarships. The donor, William Frost, has focused his giving on improving research opportunities for undergraduates and mathematics and science learning in general.
