Western to Launch New School Thanks to Large Donation
September 13, 2018

Western State Colorado University recently unveiled plans for a new undergraduate program in computer science and engineering. The program is being created from a $80 million donation by Paul Rady, a 1978 graduate of the school. It's the largest donation in Western's history and one of the largest ever for a public university in Colorado.

The Paul M. Rady School of Computer Science and Engineering will offer degrees through the University of Colorado but students will attend courses at Western. The program will be housed in a 75,000 square-foot building on the south side of campus.

“This is quite literally Western’s greatest opportunity in its history to evolve into a serious force in education and technology,” said Greg Salsbury, President of WSCU.
