Dr. Dre has a lot of money, shared some with University of Southern California

by Jon Carroll, 15 May 2013

Dr. Dre has, with Universal Music bigwig Jimmy Iovine, donated $70 million dollars to the University of Southern California for a new undergraduate program that will focus on arts, technology, marketing and entrepreneurship. You wonder why Dre didn’t just drop the cash on a cloning program.

"The academy’s core education will create a common, multi-lingual literacy and fluency across essential disciplines. This 'big picture' knowledge and skill will equip graduates with a leadership perspective that is unparalleled in an undergraduate degree, and that will be applicable to virtually any industry," said USC dean Erica Muhl.

The program is set to start in Autumn 2014.
