NC State recently celebrated an exceptionally generous $8.1 million gift to endow the Moise A. Khayrallah Center for Lebanese Diaspora Studies in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.

Representing the largest single gift in the history of the college, Moise and Vera Khayrallah are creating the first privately endowed center at NC State, and the world’s first center on Lebanese culture and history outside of Lebanon.
