    Gift funds professorship and research in energy, environmental policy

    A $250,000 gift from Maxwell School alumnus James Ajello ’76 MPA will create a new professorship in energy and environmental policy, while supporting interdisciplinary research projects in that field. The gift, with an initial term of five years, also funds opportunities — both training and research — for graduate and undergraduate students.
