Principal and Founding Donors

In October 2022, we officially became endowed as the Meltzer Center for Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging, named after Roger Meltzer '77. We would like to extend our tremendous thanks to Roger and Robin Meltzer, as well as DLA Piper, for their dedicated support and investment in the center since our original inception in 2016.

We are also incredibly grateful to our Principal Donors for their significant leadership gifts to support the center’s re-naming, as well as to our Founding Donors for their generous contributions to that effort. Your support will help advance the Meltzer Center’s work in diversity, inclusion, and belonging for many years to come.
