It's official. U.M. President Donna Shalala has unveiled the great fundraising campaign for the University of Miami, code-named Momentum. And the goal is not small—a cool $1 billion by mid-2007, although I think this sum includes donations to things like scholarships as well as gifts to capital.
Actually, like most university capital campaigns, it began before it began, and we now have more than half donated or pledged.
Unfortunately for me, it looks as if the medical school will not just get the lion's share, but a couple dozen other shares too. The law school's share in all this is, well, quite small in the grand scheme of things, and less than double what is to be earmarked for ROTC.
