THE AQUINAS COLLEGE FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES $2.5 MILLION GIFT FROM WEGE FOUNDATION
Gift to establish the nation’s first collegiate economicology program as envisioned by Peter Wege
Aquinas College and the Aquinas College Foundation today announced a $2.5 million gift from the Wege Foundation to establish the nation’s first-ever economicology program at the collegiate level; which the late Peter Wege envisioned for Aquinas. Peter Wege coined the term economicology to define the balance necessary between economy and ecology. He believed in the importance of educating the public about how a prosperous economy depends on maintaining a healthy environment.
“The Wege Foundation has long been a generous friend and supporter of Aquinas College,” said Juan Olivarez, Aquinas president.
