Indiana University's School of Philanthropy has been re-dedicated as the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy.


University officials - led by President Michael McRobbie - held an inaugural service Tuesday on the IUPUI campus to celebrate the name change. Spokesperson Adriene Kalugyer says the move gives the nation's first school of philanthropy greater impact. In 2006, the Lilly Endowment gave the Center on Philanthropy $40 million to support education and training initiatives. However, Kalugyer adds they view philanthropy as "voluntary action for the public good."

She says the Lilly family has set a great example in that philanthropy can also mean volunteerism and advocacy for causes and ideas in addition to service for others.
