The Dineen Challenge

$12 million left to achieve our goal! We are pleased to announce our latest fundraising achievement for Dineen Hall, the new home of the College of Law. The $15 million gift from the Dineen family included a challenge match to the College of Law community - $10.5 million in support needed to be met within five years. As of Oct. 31, 2011, just 16 months later, the College exceeded its challenge match, having secured more than $11 million in new commitments for Dineen Hall.

Thank you to all of our inaugural donors – alumni, faculty, staff and friends, who rose to the Dineen challenge – leaving us with $12 million to achieve our $46 million fundraising goal.
