Ramadans give $250K for ECU research and learning facility

Ada —  

A $250,000 gift from the Dr. Raniyah Ramadan Foundation in Oklahoma City will help fulfill one of East Central University’s longtime goals — providing a state-of-the-art research facility and program for undergraduate students.

That gift and a $701,100 grant from a Native American Serving Nontribal Institutions Program will provide the bulk of the funding for the Dr. Raniyah Ramadan Center for Undergraduate Research and Learning that will include two undergraduate research labs for biology and one each for chemistry, environmental health science and psychology.

The center will be constructed inside the lower level of the Education Building on the ECU campus.

“This is an exciting project which will enhance the hands-on learning experiences of our students involved in our research-learning programs,” said ECU President John R, Hargrave. “This generous gift from the Ramadan family will have far-reaching benefits to the teaching and learning environment here at ECU.”
