December 5, 2018

Ronald O. Perelman and his daughter Debra G. Perelman announced that the Perelman Family Foundation is making the lead gift to build a new residential college at Princeton.

The Perelmans’ generosity will allow the first of those colleges—to be named Perelman College—to proceed, advancing Princeton’s mission to expand and further diversify its undergraduate population.
