Briefly: Anonymous donation honors Oster

Yale College has received a $1 million gift from an anonymous donor to establish the Sharon Oster Resource Fund for Undergraduate Teaching and Engagement, University officials announced Wednesday. The fund, named in honor of newly appointed School of Management Dean Sharon Oster, will annually recognize faculty members who extend themselves in their work with undergraduates. Through a grant application process, professors may use the fund to finance new course development and research assistantships. In a press release, the donor cited the University’s longstanding commitment to undergraduate education and personal experience as Oster’s student and research assistant as inspiration for the gift.
