Jandernoas’ $4.3M gift aids Grand Rapids schools partnership for math proficiency

Grand Rapids business and community leaders Mike and Sue Jandernoa are intensifying their efforts to improve the mathematics proficiency of Michigan schoolchildren through a partnership with the University of Michigan.

Their $4.3 million gift will benefit the School of Education’s TeachingWorks organization, establish a need-based scholarship at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business, and expand fellowships at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy.

The bulk of the gift — $3 million — will be used to expand a TeachingWorks partnership in Grand Rapids focused on preparing and coaching teachers, particularly in mathematics education.
