Perelman Family Foundation Makes Lead Gift to Build Princeton’s First New Residential College

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. We were selected by the University to design two new residential colleges, each of which will provide an inclusive environment for 500 students to live, learn, dine, study, and socialize. 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. The project is led by Partners Deborah Berke and Maitland Jones, Principals Noah Biklen and Arthi Krishnamoorthy, and Associate Aaron Plewke. Read more here.
