$1.3 million gift to support students with disabilities
I'm pleased to announce that SIU has received a very special gift of $1.3 million to support students with disabilities. The gift from the estate of James and Martha Greenwood will create a fund to support students with disabilities studying the sciences and engineering. Jim Greenwood enrolled at SIU in 1961 because it was one of only a few universities that could accommodate his wheelchair, and he remained committed to the university throughout his life. You can learn more this powerful gift extending our legacy serving individuals with disabilities in our announcement. We couldn’t be prouder or more grateful that Jim and Martha have made it possible for other students with disabilities to attend SIU.
