From Dean Jack Knott: It is my great, great honor to share some extraordinary news. Our School has received a $50 million dollar naming gift from the Price Family Charitable Fund, to honor the life and legacy of Sol Price, founder of Price Club. This naming gift reflects a remarkable alignment between Sol Price’s life and legacy and the mission of our school. He possessed a deep understanding of the interplay between the public sector, private industry, and nonprofit organizations to improve the quality of life for individuals and communities. He also recognized the great value of an interdisciplinary approach to bring about positive social and economic change, including all the major fields of our school.
