There are 6 comments on Frederick S. Pardee Pledges Another $25 Million to Pardee School of Global Studies

  1. After joining the wonderful Evergreen program 3 years ago, I discovered Pardee which has made my participation in BU academics more than worthwhile- it has recharged my intellectual batteries. The quality of the teaching and students and the relevance of the courses for our times is remarkable. Fred Pardee should be gratified that BU has used his gifts so effectively. All Pardee needs now is a center for Chinese and/or East Asian studies.

  2. I admire and respect Fred’s generosity and involvement. We were in the same class CBA (1954), but we haven’t met again since he hasn’t come to a recent Alumni Weekend.
    The article said that he has donated 50 million, but they didn’t include 11 million that he donated to the School of Management. He is special! We all have benefited.
    Thank you, thank you, Marvin Fox

  3. Frederick S. Pardee’s generosity also made possible the creation of the Frederick S. Pardee Management Library in the Questrom School of Business. The Library opened in 1997 and is a wonderful resource for all at Boston University. Arlyne A. Jackson

  4. I applaud Mr. Pardee’s generosity. But his largesse would be more constructive if it was spread more widely, e.g. $1,000,000 each to community colleges or to small liberal-arts schools struggling to “compete” against others.

  5. Iam Bu Alum CAS 1977. Thank you Mr. Pardee!!! BU is lucky to have so many generous alumni.
    A really nice place for the Pardee building would be behind CAS close to the side walk
    A simple building would be best mainly stone ( and some glass) same color as the CAS building so it would blend in well.
    I always thought a Asian tea house would be a nice touch at the front of the proposed Pardee building and outdoor space higher up in the building overlooking the Charles.
    What about putting the language department in the building?
