Gregory Crawford, president of Miami University in Ohio, has announced that the university received a $40 million gift for the Farmer School of Business.

The donation comes from Dick and Joyce Farmer and the Farmer Family Foundation.

“We have such wonderful memories here, Joyce and I, as do our children and grandchildren,” Dick Farmer, former chairman and CEO at Cintas Corp CEO, said. “The Farmer School is one of the greatest undergraduate business schools in the country, and to remain great requires constant innovation.”

The gift will support the business school, including faculty, students and programs.
