Albion College received $8 million from former CEO of Eaton Corporation Alexander “Sandy” Cutler and his wife, alumna Sarah “Sally” Cutler, to build a center dedicated to helping underrepresented or first-generation students finish school on time.
This donation is the largest in the school’s history. The Cutler Center for Student Success and Academic Achievement will provide students with academic counseling, mentors, financial aid assistance and potential career opportunities, according to the university.
It is set to open during the 2020-21 academic year.
“We want to help ensure that more young men and women have the opportunity to successfully navigate through their years at Albion toward a timely graduation,” Sarah Cutler said in a statement. “Many young students, without any fault of their own, do not have college readiness skills and simply require additional help to move forward.”
