Philanthropist Ralph W. Hauenstein is donating $1 million to Grand Valley State University's Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies.
The Allendale school said in a statement posted Monday on its website that the gift will help enhance and expand academic and event-based learning opportunities.
Hauenstein made the initial investment to begin the center, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Its goal is to teach ethical leadership skills to future leaders while engaging students and the community in conversations about history, politics and the greater civic good.
