À la recherché

At the eighth annual faculty-staff colloquium to begin the new academic year, Priscilla Payne Hurd, chair of the Board of Trustees, announced her largest gift yet to Moravian College: a $1.5 million endowed fund for student-faculty research, named in honor of outgoing President Rokke.

By the time the Q&A period arrived, Dennis Domchek, vice president for administration, had worked out that the fund would yield $67,500 annually.

Student-faculty collaborative research has been one of President Rokke’s pet projects during his tenure.
