Alumni John and Tashia Morgridge offer remarks following an announcement of the couple's $50 million gift during a news conference held April 3 at the Waisman Center. The Morgridges' donation, the largest individual gift ever to benefit the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is being matched by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF), and paves the way for a pioneering, public-private scientific collaboration at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery. The private institute, to be called the Morgridge Institute for Research, will encourage collaboration with industry and enable the institute to respond more quickly to capitalize on scientific opportunities as they arise. John Morgridge is the chair of the board of Cisco Systems. Tashia Morgridge is a retired special-education teacher.
