Seen at FAU

Last month, the Volunteer Center partnered with the Office for Student Retention and Pearl City C.A.T.S. for the Living Learning Community (LLC) Common Hour to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. LLC student Moody Fuller read the children a story about Dr. King’s life. The children then worked on arts and crafts projects with the LLC students. The Office for Student Retention would like to thank the following LLC students for participating in this remarkable and fun-filled day of service: Christopher Bartfield, Arielle Gavin, Cherise Latta, Daniella Gonzalez, Marcus Motes, Alyssa Kelley, Jacob Kaplan, Moody Fuller, Juergen Henry and Kevin Williams.


Members of FAU's Board of Trustees, their spouses, University faculty and staff, and faculty from Scripps Florida gathered recently for a reception and dinner at the Abacoa Golf Club. President Brogan welcomed everyone and introduced special guests Dr. Richard Houghten from the Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies and his wife, Pam. After dinner, Dr. Harry Orf, Scripps Vice President for Scientific Operations, gave a brief update on Scripps Florida's progress.

Record-breaking $16 Million Gift Names
Barry Kaye College of Business

History was made at FAU last month as philanthropists Carole and Barry Kaye committed $16 million—the largest gift in FAU history—to create the Barry Kaye College of Business. The gift names the college and establishes an endowment that will support academic programs, faculty and students. In addition, the gift is eligible for matching funds from the State of Florida Trust Fund for University Major Gifts, raising its total value to $32 million.
