M+W was just selected to design the Lehman Brothers Center for Global Finance and Economic Development at Spelman College.  This new program was made possible with a $10 million gift from Lehman Brothers.

“Hoping to increase the numbers of black women entering the financial services industry, Lehman Bros. Holdings Inc. today will announce a $10 million gift — the largest in the firm’s 157-year history — to Spelman College.The donation to the historically black, all-female Atlanta college — which also is the single-largest corporate donation Spelman has received — will create the Lehman Bros. Center for Global Finance and Economic Development at the school.

In addition to the development of an interdisciplinary program that will ultimately become a major, Lehman’s gift will be used to hire new faculty, establish scholarships and create a Chinese-language instruction program, said Beverly Daniel Tatum, Spelman’s president.” -Atlanta Journal and Constitution article
