Ross commits gift for new WPSU transmitter and Pattee Library expansion

Keiko Miwa Ross, of State College, Pennsylvania, has made a gift of $2 million to support WPSU television and Penn State University Libraries. This major commitment will enable WPSU-TV to completely replace its aging transmitter system, which is running at limited power. The gift from Ross will also support extensive upgrades to Pattee Library and Paterno Library as part of its Libraries 2020 renovation and expansion project, with the new space scheduled to open in fall 2019.

Penn State will honor Ross’ gift by naming two library spaces: the Dr. Keiko Miwa Ross Pattee Garden Terrace, a new Pattee Library student-centered study and gathering space that will include an outdoor garden; and the Dr. Keiko Miwa Ross Global News Center, which provides access to international news collections. She will also receive on-air recognition during select WPSU-TV programming. Read the entire news release available on Penn State News.
