Case Business School Gets $2.5 Million Gift

CLEVELAND (AP) - A Cleveland retail developer has given $2.5 million to Case Western Reserve's business school, one of the largest gifts to the school in recent years.

The donation from Bert and Iris Wolstein will be split between a $1 million renovation of Sycamore Hall, which houses the undergraduate business program, and an endowed chair for the school.

Case Western's interim president said that the university expects a "continuing relationship" with the Wolsteins as the Weatherhead School of Management expands.
