Building on a Great Tradition of Learning

“Columbia Law School has been forever transformed by the philanthropy of the Jerome L. Greene Foundation. From the spaciousness and light of the hall where we hosted the Greene Scholarship Luncheon… to the high technology of our classrooms, the generosity of (the Greene) family is felt throughout our School.”
— David M. Schizer, former Dean and Lucy G. Moses Professor of Law

A graduate of both Columbia University and its Law School, Jerry Greene was a loyal and  enthusiastic alumnus. Jerry and the Foundation funded the rebuilding of the Law School, the modernization of classrooms, and the establishment of scholarship funds and endowed professorships at the Law School, the Medical School and the Mailman School of Public Health. The Jerome L. Greene Science Center for the study of mind, brain and behavior is the cornerstone of the University’s new Manhattanville campus. In all, the Greene Family has provided almost $300 million to support the University.
