Former members of the Saint John's Board of Regents and current Trustees have led the way on funding for the Saint John's Learning Commons. In 2010, a Regent who wished to remain anonymous made a $1 million commitment to the project. A year later, a handful of other board members followed suit with major gifts to the Learning Commons. Donors included: SJU Trustee Steve Armstrong '73, and his wife, Cindy; Former Regent Bernie Dan '83, and his wife Jody; SJU Trustee Ann Huntrods, and her husband, Terry; Former Regent Ken Roering '64, and his wife, Betsy; and Former Trustee Don Schumacher '65, and his wife, Kitty '66.

"I am deeply grateful to members of the Board of Regents for their leadership and generosity to the Learning Commons," said Bob Koopmann, OSB, former president of Saint John's University. "This project is critically important to the future of Saint John's. It will help transform the quality of student learning, and it is crucial to our admissions and enrollment efforts."
