Former Ambassador Gives $20-Million to Florida International University

Florida International University's international and public affairs program received a $20-million gift from the family foundation of former U.S. ambassador to Singapore Steven J. Green, the South Florida Business Journal reports.

The gift from Mr. Green, a former chief executive of the luggage manufacturer Samsonite Corporation, will fund an endowment for research with a focus on transnational studies and security policy.

Several campus programs have been renamed in honor of Mr. Green and his family.
