Giving Opportunities: Restore the Rotunda

"This rotunda is dedicated to Harvery Cushing, inspiring teacher, pathfinder in neurosurgery, master of the science and art of healing."


Restore the Cushing Rotunda – $1,500,000

Dedicated 75 years ago by the Class of Yale 1891 in affectionate memory of their classmate Harvey Cushing, the Cushing Rotunda is perhaps the most cherished and distinctive space within the Medical Center. For generations the rotunda has ignited and inspired hope that others might contribute so much to the art and science of medicine as Dr. Cushing did. Help restore the Cushing Rotunda to its original luster and beauty, so that it inspires scholars and clinicians for years to come.

An inscription will be added to the rotunda to recognize the remarkable and greatly appreciated generosity of the donor.
