"I don't think the O'Keefe's could have anticipated that their generous gift would have such an impact in terms of research that is literally off this world."

O'Keefe Professor for the Mackay School
and planetary scientist

The hallmark of a great university is its faculty.

Named faculty positions are one of the best ways to broaden their impact. These positions benefit generations of faculty and their students and often take a donor's legacy in directions they could not have imagined. As the O'Keefe Professor and a planetary scientist, Wendy Calvin's research on Mars and the lunar landscape has taken the O'Keefe legacy beyond the horizon of our very world.

"Having a donor on board — it would truly be a partner in solidifying this collection and keeping it safe forever."

Beth Leger, Foundation Professor and Director of the Museum of Natural History

Everything has its place, and every place has a name.

From the buildings on campus that serve as the physical centers of our students' academic experience to the research groups and labs that make an impact around the world, the places, spaces and organizations at the College of Science serve as the foundation for academic prowess and growth. The donors who choose to name these pillars of college life help build that foundation even stronger.

To the Director of the Museum of Natural History Elizabeth Leger, a name for the Museum means having a partner in her pursuit to safeguard the collection of irreplaceable treasures.
