Indiana University Renames Graduate School for Paul O'Neill, PRHI Co-Founder
Paul O'Neill, co-founder of the Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative, has made a major gift to Indiana University, the educational institution he calls "instrumental in preparing me for all that followed" and for instilling "intellectual curiosity and excellence. "
With the $30 million bequest from the O'Neill Family, IU's graduate school of public affairs was renamed the Paul H. O'Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs in early March.
Mr. O'Neill, the former CEO of Alcoa and chairman of RAND Corp., earned his Master's of Public Administration from the school in 1966.
"My hope is that the school remains a place of excellence where future leaders can combine passion with action and develop the confidence they need to engage with society's greatest challenges and opportunities," Mr. O'Neill said.
