Ameritech donates $52,000 to Wayne State University

Wayne State University recently received two checks totaling $52,000 from Ameritech.

A $40,000 check represents the second and third payments of Ameritech's five-year pledge for WSU's new Manufacturing Engineering Building. The second check, for $12,000, is the company's matching contribution for its corporate matching gift program.

"Ameritech is committed to extending the scope and quality of higher education," said Robert Cooper, president of Ameritech Michigan. "The new Manufacturing Engineering Building provides expanded resources for research and distance learning."

A campus tour and a visit to the new building preceded a luncheon and presentation ceremony attended by Robert Cooper, Ameritech's new president; Wayne State President David Adamany; and Chin Kuo, the new dean of WSU's College of Engineering.

Faculty and staff only recently settled into the new Manufacturing Engineering Building. The 42,525-square-foot facility includes seven large and 12 small research laboratories, two distance-learning classrooms and 11 student offices.
