$250M Endowment Establishes Coleman Institute


January 2001

CU President Elizabeth Hoffman announced the largest private gift ever made to a public university -- a $250 million endowment from Bill and Claudia Coleman creating a systemwide institute for advanced research and development of innovative technologies for people with cognitive disabilities. The four-campus Coleman Institute for Cognitive Disabilities will be centered in the College of Engineering and Applied Science, and Associate Dean Michael Lightner will serve as the technology director. The Department of Computer Science played a significant role in attracting this donation, and will also play a major role in fulfilling the goals of the Institute.
