Dr. Dre Donates $70M

In 2013 legendary Hip-Hop Producer Dr. Dre and Record Executive Jimmy Iovine donated $70 million to USC to create a new undergraduate program called the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation.

The academy’s curriculum will focus on “arts and entrepreneurship; technology, design and marketability; concept and business platforms; and creating a prototype,” according to a USC statement. The program’s mission will be to create “a new generation of inspired innovators.”
