IU honors Lilly family with philanthropy school name

Indiana University will conduct an inauguration ceremony Tuesday of its school of philanthropy; it will be named the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy.

The ceremony will be at the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis campus.

“The Lilly family is one of the great philanthropic families in America, and their impact in Indiana, and especially on Indiana University, through their extraordinary generosity across six generations has been immense," said Indiana University President Michael A. McRobbie in a written statement.

The formal naming is subject to approval by the IU Board of Trustees at its meeting Thursday, the statement said.
