Laurance S. Rockefeller has given Princeton University $21 million to create a center for the study and teaching of human values, the university announced Tuesday.
The Center for Human Values is to offer undergraduate courses and graduate seminars in areas such as religion, culture and morality; ethics and international politics; moral education and development; and philosophy and public affairs.
And in Pittsburgh, Paul Mellon, a member of one of the families that founded Carnegie Mellon University, has given $5 million to the school, officials said Tuesday.
Mellon's gift will be used toward construction of a campus performing arts center. The center is expected to cost $10 million.
