Ohio State professor donates $2 million to Department of Psychology : onCampus: "Gifts on this scale by university professors are relatively rare. Weary hopes her gift will encourage other faculty and staff to invest in programs about which they are passionate. She gives credit to her parents for instilling in her the importance of philanthropy. “My parents valued higher education. Through their philanthropy, they put a number of people through college,” she said. ”They gave to many institutions, both public and private. But they always knew that public universities have the ability to reach more people.”"
