$1.025 Million Given To Santa Monica College
Posted by Ivetta Babadjanian on Jan 14, 2013 - 1:32:45 PM

SANTA MONICA—Officials announced on Monday, January 14 that the Santa Monica College will receive a $1 million gift in order to expand the number of courses available online.

The largest donation the college has ever received at the Westside campus was provided by Santa Monica residents Conrad Lee Klein and Joan Dempsey Klein to create the Conrad Lee Klein Find for Online Education. The contribution includes $25,000 which will go to other college priorities while $1 million will be used to support online programs.

“Online education provides an increasingly vital alternative to the traditional college classroom setting,” Santa Monica President Chui L. Tsang said in a statement. “Working people, parents, individuals with disabilities, people who live outside the Santa Monica area and many others who cannot regularly attend classes on campus will benefit immensely from this extremely generous gift.”

Approximately 20 percent of Santa Monica students take a portion or all of their classes online and in the 2011-2012 academic year, the college provided students with 725 online courses. The Klein gift will be used to increase the number of online classes as well as improve online instruction.
Conrad Klein is the trustee of the Mark Hughes Family Trust and president of the Mark Hughes Charity Foundation. He will become a member of Santa Monica College's Advisory Committee for the Academy on Entertainment and Technology. Joan Klein is the current justice of the California Court of Appeal, second appellate district and a co-founder of the National Association of Women Judges.
