Following a gift from the Wythes family, the Center on Contemporary China has been renamed the PAUL AND MARCIA WYTHES CENTER ON CONTEMPORARY CHINA in honor of former University trustee Paul Wythes ’55 and his wife, Marcia. Paul Wythes, who died in 2012, was a trustee for 14 years and in 1997 was chosen to lead a study of long-term strategic issues facing the University. The resulting recommendations — known as the Wythes Report — led to the expansion of the undergraduate population and enhanced policies to diversify the student body.
