University of Missouri receives $1 million dollar gift

The University of Missouri has received another major gift.

ABC 17 News was there for Friday morning’s announcement at the Reynolds Alumni Center.

Mark Wilkins, a resident of St. Louis, gave the College of Arts and Sciences $1 million to create the Mark Wilkins Fund for Excellence.

The money will go towards faculty enhancement so the college can recruit and retain faculty members.

Wilkins said he wants to give current and future MU students access to quality faculty members, like he had when he was a student.
