Gift from Eric and Wendy Schmidt to Create a New Home for Computer Science at Princeton University [via Princeton University]

Thanks to a gift from Eric and Wendy Schmidt, Guyot Hall will be substantially rebuilt and expanded to create a new home for Princeton’s Department of Computer Science.

Earlier this year, the University announced the Schmidts’ gift establishing the Schmidt DataX Fund, which will advance the breadth and depth of data science impact on campus, accelerate discovery in three large, interdisciplinary research efforts, and create opportunities to educate, train, convene, and support a broad data science community at the University.

Additionally, in 2009, the Schmidts established the Eric and Wendy Schmidt Transformative Technology Fund, an endowment which supports the invention, development, and utilization of cutting-edge technology that has the capacity to transform research in the natural sciences and engineering at Princeton.
