Record Gift Means The Realization of a New Vision for Dominican University

Dominican University of California has received its largest gift in the school's more than 100-year history. The gift, from Andrew Barowsky, chair of the University's Board of Trustees, is for $17.5 million.

When fully realized the gift will mean $25 million in new revenue to the university, initiated by the $17.5 million led by Barowsky. The new revenue will enable the university to launch a renewed vision of liberal arts education that will benefit all students.

“This gift is the beginning of the next decade of Dominican’s evolution,” President Mary Marcy said. “As the future of higher education is being shaped by societal, economic, and technological forces, it is critical to think of new ways in which a university can nurture and inspire a new generation of students while preparing them for success in their future endeavors."

The gift also will establish the Andrew P. Barowsky School of Business, expand the University’s international programming through the creation of the Françoise O. Lepage Center for Global Innovation, and launch the Acacia Project, a series of long-term upgrades to the physical campus.

“Andrew Barowsky’s gift is unique, as it is not funding just one building or one program,” President Marcy said. “He is investing in creating an important new vision that will ensure that every student’s education leads not simply to a successful career but to a purposeful, effective life.”
