$105 MILLION DONATION TO BUILD NEW OHIO UNIVERSITY MED SCHOOL CAMPUS
COLUMBUS, OHIO — Ohio University is building an extension campus in Central Ohio using a $105 million donation from Columbus-based Osteopathic Heritage Foundations. The payment will be spread over 16 years from the foundation's usual annual outlay of about $13 million. The gift will also be used to add faculty and research on the Athens, Ohio, campus for diabetes and conditions striking the skeleton, muscles and nervous system. More than half of the gift — $67 million — will be used for three new buildings, which will open in 2014.
