MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – Two longtime Kansas State University supporters have donated $10 million to support a new building for the school’s College of Business Administration.
Paul and Sandra Edgerley of Brookline, Mass., have provided financial support for years to the university where Paul Edgerley graduated in 1978 with a bachelor’s degree in business.
He is managing director of Bain Capital Partners in Boston, while Sandra Edgerley worked at Bain for 10 years and is an active leader in a number of Boston-based charitable institutions.
The couple previously established the Edgerley family chair in the College of Business Administration and many other academic and athletic initiatives.
The university says the proposed new building will have 140,000 square feet of space featuring classrooms, a lecture hall, computer labs and executive conference room.
