Correction It was inaccurately reported in Building Foundations for Social Justice (January 2014) that funds for construction of the Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership are within the $23 million endowment grant from the Arcus Foundation. In fact, funds for the building were provided through a personal gift by Kalamazoo College trustee and alumnus Jon Stryker.
