The money will go to the university’s engineering school, which will be already named for A. James Clark, in addition to also also will fund an array of need-based scholarships, graduate fellowships, distinguished faculty chairs in addition to also also operational in addition to also also capital projects.

Clark was a Maryland engineering graduate who made his fortune which has a general contracting company. He then created Clark Enterprises, a Maryland-based real estate in addition to also also private equity firm. He passed away in 2015.

“Without question, my dad loved the University of Maryland,” said Courtney Clark Pastrick, chair of the foundation. “College Park was instrumental in educating in addition to also also equipping him as an engineer in addition to also also successful businessman.”

The school said the idea will be the largest gift in UMD history in addition to also also among the largest to a public university since the turn of the century.

Thousands of miles away, the University of Hawaii announced which alumnus Jay Shidler had donated another $117 million in cash in addition to also also real estate leases to the school. The brand new donation brings his total gifts to the school to $228 million. The gift will go to the college of business at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, which already bears Shidler’s name. The school said the $228 million will be the largest individual gift in its 110-year history.

The gift of leases of ground under office buildings in major mainland cities may end up being worth significantly more to the school as Shidler estimates they will generate a minimum of $2.1 billion of cash flow for the college. At the end of the leases’ term, the college will be due to receive ownership of the related office buildings, which together with the land will be estimated to be worth $5.1 billion.
