Two gifts totaling $35 million from University of Notre Dame alumnus Richard Corbett will underwrite the construction of a 280,000-square-foot building on the east side of Notre Dame Stadium and endow the head football coaching position at the University.
A $25 million gift is in support of Corbett Family Hall, which will house the Departments of Anthropology and Psychology and a digital media center, and the remaining $10 million will establish the coaching endowment.
“For many generations of Notre Dame faculty and students to come, Corbett Family Hall will represent a full integration of teaching, research and advanced technology on our campus,” said Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., Notre Dame’s president. “Likewise, the endowment of the coaching position reflects Dick Corbett’s insight about the ways in which athletics contributes to Notre Dame's larger commitment to educating students in mind, body and spirit.
“We are humbled by and tremendously grateful for these extraordinary gifts from Dick.”
