Defining the Future

In November 2018 George Marcus (B.A., ’65) and Judy Otten Marcus (B.A., ’62) became the University's largest donors and lead supporters of the BOLD Thinking campaign. The Marcuses funded and established the George and Judy Marcus Funds for Excellence in the Liberal Arts, a comprehensive gift to the College of Liberal and Creative Arts that includes four new endowed faculty chairs, student and faculty research support, and program and facilities upgrades.
