Professor Ronald Peters is faculty emeritus with the School. As the former director of the Labor Education Program, his roots are firmly in labor, and his family’s gift will name the office suite where the Labor Education Program has been housed in Champaign for more than 40 years. The Peters’ donation of $25,000 will name the LEP offices on the 2nd floor of LER and is the second such gift for this building campaign from an emeritus member of the LER faculty, joining Professor Emeritus Walt Franke.
“Lilia and I are pleased to be able to make this gift to this important project. The building addition is one of the most important things LER’s has undertaken in the past 60 years and we are delighted to be a part of this effort.”
