The UB School of Law announced Monday that it has reached its seven-year, $30 million fundraising campaign goal.
Law school officials call it the most ambitious fundraising campaign in the school’s history. Funds from the campaign, an initiative started by former Dean Makau Mutua, are intended for scholarship assistance, faculty support and programming and facilities improvements at the school.
Six major commitments of at least $1 million, including a $4 million deferred gift commitment, were given, according to officials. In all, there were more than 6,000 donors. The endowment for the only public law school in the State University of New York system has now doubled since the campaign began in 2009.
