University Trustee Dennis J. Keller, MBA’68, co-founder and retired chairman and CEO of DeVry Education Group, committed $20 million to Harris Public Policy, the second-largest gift in the school’s history. University Trustee King Harris, chairman of Harris Holdings, Inc. and board chair of AptarGroup, Inc., and his family, provided $12.5 million, adding to their longstanding support of Harris Public Policy.

Named in recognition of the generous support of Dennis J. and Connie Keller, our home at The Keller Center showcases Harris Public Policy's enduring commitment to intellectual openness, inclusiveness and bold innovation. The Keller Center will also serve as one of the University of Chicago’s anchors on the south side of campus, connecting us to the neighboring communities.

In addition to these two leading donors, many other generous supporters have helped make this building possible. We are grateful for their support and look forward to honoring them in our new space.
