Nazareth College’s new Integrated Center for Math and Science will have the name Peckham Hall when it opens to students in August of this year, thanks to a $2 million gift from Larry and Nancy Peckham. Peckham Hall, which will house the Integrated Center for Math and Science, will play an instrumental role in leading the way for Nazareth students to receive the very best in math and science education, enabling the College to increase the number of students who pursue majors in science and math fields, as well as those who pursue careers as health and human services professionals and teachers of math and science.
“Nazareth College is enormously grateful to Larry and Nancy Peckham for this generous gift to name the Integrated Center for Math and Science,” said Nazareth President Daan Braveman. “They have looked into the future and see how this building will help Nazareth expand the number of students interested in pursuing careers in math, science, technology, health care, and teaching. They also understand that the facility will have far-reaching impact on the Rochester community as many of our students remain in the region as health care professionals, teachers, and professionals in STEM-related fields.”
