Chapter Eighteen: 2000–2001 323
On April 27, the Board of Trustees approved a total budget of $678 million for
the 2001–2002 fiscal year. The new budget included $461 million for the Bowman
Gray Campus and $217 million for the Reynolda Campus. Full-time undergradu-
ate tuition increased 5 percent from $22,410 to $23,530. The Old Gold and Black
pointed out in an above-the-fold front-page story on March 29 that the proposed
$1,120 tuition hike would mean that, over the past ten years, tuition had risen 142.6
percent from the 1991 price of $9,700.
An anonymous donor gave $4 million to endow a scholarship fund for lower-
and middle-income students and other students from the University’s traditional
constituency. The Heritage Scholarship was given to thirty-two new and returning
students in fall 2001. K. Wayne Smith (’60), a former member of the Board of Trust-
ees, established a scholarship for high school seniors from his hometown of Newton.
Eleanor Reid Forrow and her husband, Brian D. Forrow, of Greenwich, Con-
necticut, gave $100,000 to the Divinity School in honor of her late parents, Albert
Clayton Reid and Eleanor Jones Reid. The gift was designated to encourage and
to promote the practice of pastoral care. Lynn Durham of Midland, Texas, also
gave the school $100,000 for scholarships. The school used a $50,000 grant from
the Tannenbaum-Sternberger Foundation of Greensboro to establish and support
a partnership with the Greensboro Urban Ministry, and in spring 2001 created a
denominational studies emphasis, with specific programs for Baptist and Presby-
terian students.
The Charles M. Allen Professorship was established in January 2001. Allen taught
in the Biology department from 1941 until 1989. He started the Artists Series in 1958
and ran it for twenty years, and he made
valuable contributions to the design
of the Scales Fine Arts building and
other campus projects during the Scales
administration.
The new Pro Humanitate Fund for
Service-Learning in Action received a
grant for $384,000 from an anonymous
donor to help faculty integrate com-
munity service into their courses. The
new program built on the success of the
Academic and Community Engagement
(ACE) Fellowship program, which intro-
duced selected faculty to service-learning
techniques, so they could include com-
munity service as a course requirement.
The new fund allowed more professors
to complete the training and provided
grants to faculty engaged in community-
based research.
The Law School received a $150,000
grant from the Jessie Ball duPont Chari-
table and Educational Fund to benefit
