For Urban Library Service-Thank you Bob Holley

Wayne State University professor emeritus Robert P. Holley has pledged a record-setting $500,000 gift to the School of Library and Information Science (SLIS). Expanding a commitment he began 17 years ago, Holley becomes the most generous single-gift donor in the school’s 50-year history.
Half-million-dollar pledge sets record, aims to boost urban library professionals
The gift has dual purposes: to expand the Robert P. Holley Endowed Scholarship Fund and to establish the Robert P. Holley Endowed Support Fund. The Holley Endowed Scholarship supports SLIS students who plan to work in urban areas and serve underrepresented communities, while the Holley Support Fund will provide ongoing funding to support the SLIS mission.
