Largest single gift ever!

A thoughtful, $2 million donation

A generous $2 million gift to UWL — the largest single gift ever to the campus — will do more than name the new Science Labs Building under construction. It will transform the way science is taught.

With the gift from Prairie Springs: The Paul Fleckenstein Trust, the new building will be named the Prairie Springs Science Center. And, the gift creates the Prairie Springs Endowment Fund to support research and scholarship in:

  • environmental studies and education
  • wildlife habitat protection
  • wildlife protection
  • conservation
  • ecological technology
