The University of Chicago Booth School of Business has renamed its Social Enterprise Initiative to the Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation in honor of Tandean Rustandy, MBA’07, who donated $20 million dollars in May. The revamped center, “will serve as a hub at The University of Chicago Booth School of Business for students and faculty tackling complex social and environmental problems, building upon the school’s grounding in business fundamentals, experiential learning and research-based insights.”
Only two days later, The University of Chicago Medicine announced a second gift, this time worth $100 million, from the Duchossois Family, which will establish The Duchossois Family Institute. The new institute will, “support development of a ‘new science of wellness’ aimed at preserving health and complementing medicine’s traditional focus on disease treatment.” This is the fourth gift of $100 million or more to The University of Chicago in the last ten years.
