Tuskegee University in Alabama has announced the creation of the nonprofit Tuskegee University Foundation. The foundation will raise funds and support the university’s instructional, research, and engagement missions. The new foundation is headed by Matthew Jenkins, CEO of SDD Enterprises, who holds a doctor of veterinary medicine degree from Tuskegee and is a former member of the board of trustees.

“The foundation’s primary objective will be to enhance the university’s capacity with respect to research and development contracts and subcontracts, to enable commercialization of intellectual property and to assist the university in sustainable management of off-campus fixed assets,” said Gilbert L.
