The College of Florida Fredric G. Levin School of Legislation has introduced a $40 million property present from alumnus and namesake Fredric G. Levin (JD ’61).

The present will bolster the legislation faculty’s efforts to recruit and enroll gifted and various college students, appeal to world-class school, increase tutorial and scientific applications, and guarantee graduate success by means of profession preparation. As well as, the present will help pupil alternatives, together with scholarships for extremely credentialed incoming college students, public curiosity stipends for college kids doing unpaid summer season work at nonprofits and authorities entities, and increasing the HBCU Pathway to Legislation Endowment, which supplies scholarships to graduates of traditionally Black schools and universities who enroll at UF Legislation.

In January 2021, Levin handed away on the age of 83. Following a $10 million present in 1999, UF Legislation was named in Levin’s honor, and in 2019, he awarded the college 300,000 shares of inventory valued at $6 million. Thus far, the Levin household has dedicated greater than $60 million to UF.

“We stay deeply humbled by the longstanding generosity of Fred and his household,” stated Laura A. Rosenbury, dean and Levin, Mabie & Levin Professor of Legislation. “UF Legislation has made super progress due to the monetary help of the Levins and the help of different donors who’ve been impressed by the Levins’ generosity.”
