The university officially opened the new USC Engemann Student Health Center — a new five-story, 101,000-square-foot facility established with a lead gift of $15 million from USC Trustee Michele Dedeaux Engemann and her husband, Roger Engemann.
To express the university’s gratitude, USC President C. L. Max Nikias invoked the words of the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates: “Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity.”
Nikias called the Engemanns “two faithful philanthropists who have demonstrated their love of humanity and of this university through their extraordinary legacy of generosity and support.”
“By providing $15 million to help create this new health center, Michele and Roger Engemann have made a wise investment that will enhance the vitality of the entire university community,” said Nikias, who predicted that the health center would grow in importance as USC transitions into an increasingly residential university.
