Jeff and Judy Henley have just given UCSB its largest gift ever. A $50 million donation will be divided between the Institute for Energy Efficiency (IEE) and the College of Engineering.
Jeff Henley is a UCSB alum and chairman of the board of Oracle. His wife, Judy, helped design the university’s front gate which is named after them. Thirty million dollars of the Henleys’ latest offering will go toward another named facility — Henley Hall — which will house the IEE. It will also be used for faculty recruitment. The other $20 million, to be given to the College of Engineering, comes in the form of an estate commitment.
