CCSU Receives $8M Gift; School named in donor’s honor
Central Connecticut State University President Jack Miller announced on Friday, December 10, 2010 that the University is receiving its largest gift ever. Carol A. Ammon, a very successful businesswoman and a Central alumna, Class of 1973, is making a generous $8 million contribution to CCSU through the Carol A. Ammon Foundation. Her gift will be used for student scholarships and academic program support.
As a symbol of gratitude, the Board of Trustees of the Connecticut State University has designated the School of Arts & Sciences at Central Connecticut State University the Carol A. Ammon School of Arts & Sciences. A celebration of the school’s renaming was held in Spring 2011.
In May 2010 CCSU Professor of Management and Organization David Fearon interviewed Carol Ammon. The interview was directed by Colleen Brown and Nick Proch. Produced by the Office of Marketing and Communications, Assistant Professor Jeffrey B. Teitler, and the Department of Communication's Production and Performance Studies.
