Wayne State University has been awarded a $3 million challenge grant by The Kresge Foundation for construction of the Richard J. Mazurek M.D. Medical Education Commons. The medical school will receive the money provided it can raise an additional $20 million to fund the project. “Education is a very strong category in our grant program,” said Kresge President John Marshall III. “When public universities do fundraising with individuals and corporations, that’s tapping into a potential for gift support that we are very happy to assist.”
