APPLETON - Lawrence University received a $2.5 million donation from the Mielke Family Foundation.

The Mielke Family Foundation has been a major university donor for the last 30 years.

The donation will expand Lawrence University’s current teacher education program to include elementary teacher education beginning in the fall of 2015.

Mark Burstein, Lawrence University President, says "Lawrence has also been just so grateful for the investments that the Mielke family has made and has really made Lawrence a more quality and stronger institution."
