The University of Notre Dame celebrated the generosity of alumnus Ted H. McCourtney and his wife, Tracy, in a groundbreaking ceremony Saturday (Oct. 4) for a world-class research facility to be named in their honor.
McCourtney Hall, to be located on the east side of the Notre Dame campus near Hesburgh Library, will be a 220,000-square-foot building underwritten by a $35 million gift from the McCourtneys.
“As our robust research in engineering and science required new space, Ted and Tracy McCourtney once again stepped forward in a remarkable demonstration of generosity and affection for Notre Dame,” said Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., president of the University. “At the blessing and official groundbreaking, we will join the McCourtney family in celebrating their steadfast faithfulness and love of family and alma mater.”
