The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation and the Mandel Supporting Foundations have awarded a $10 million gift to the Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) Foundation to establish the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Humanities Center. The donation – the largest ever received by the College – will create a center focused on creating civically responsible citizens who will lead Northeast Ohio toward a stronger economic and social future.
The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Humanities Center will bring together faculty, students and community members to participate in classes, seminars, lectures and special events that will contribute to the development of civic engagement.
“Over the last 13 years, our Foundation has supported Tri-C because we believe in the College’s mission. We are pleased to join President Alex Johnson and the Tri-C leadership team in producing enthusiastic graduates for our community,” said Morton Mandel, Chairman of the Foundation. “Our Foundation is committed to leadership and the advancement of higher education and this grant furthers that mission.”
