Hedge fund manager Mark Strome has donated $10 million to his alma mater, Old Dominion University.

ODU president John R. Broderick announced that the donation from the Strome Family Foundation will be used to “establish an entrepreneurial curriculum that would be available to students across the university and include an introduction to entrepreneurship course.”

According to a statement released by the university, a portion of the gift may go toward building a co-curricular programming, which would include creating a centralized entrepreneurial center, as well as lectures, competitions and mentorships.

Strome, who is a 1978 graduate of ODU, is the founder and chief investment officer of California-based Strome Investment Management.
