Illinois Institute of Technology President Alan W. Cramb announced on Monday that the university will be using part of the most recent gift from Illinois Tech Board of Trustees Chairman Michael P. Galvin (LAW '78) to cover student out-of-pocket COVID-19 testing expenses, starting at the beginning of the fall semester.

“The health and academic success of the Illinois Tech community is the top priority of the Board of Trustees, and I am proud to see the university supporting our students in this way,” Galvin says. 

Up to $1 million from Galvin’s gift will go to support those costs.

“On behalf of the entire Illinois Tech community, I would like to thank Chairman Galvin for his generous support of Illinois Tech as well as his steadfast leadership during these trying times,” Cramb says.
