UDaily: Bob Gore gift - UD announces $10 million commitment from alumnus, business leader

The University of Delaware has received a $10 million commitment from alumnus and Delaware entrepreneur Bob Gore. The gift will benefit the University’s 194,000-square-foot Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory (ISE Lab), which opened with the beginning of the fall semester.  In recognition of Gore’s generosity, the research wing of this state-of-the-art facility will be called the “Bob and Jane Gore Research Laboratories.”  

“The entire UD community is grateful to Bob Gore for this landmark gift,” says UD President Patrick Harker. “Bob understands that the ISE Lab will stimulate the same kind of cross-disciplinary, problem-based approach to learning, invention and innovation that’s been so integral to his own legendary success. Through his profoundly generous gift, Bob is investing in the future discoveries of every researcher, faculty member and student who walks through the doors of the Bob and Jane Gore Research Laboratories.”
