INDIANAPOLIS -

The University of Indianapolis has launched the public phase of a $50 million fundraising campaign. At the launch event, the school also announced a major gift from Gene and Mary Ann Zink to establish an interdisciplinary institute to study poverty.

The Zink's funding will endow scholarships, research opportunities, visiting speakers and faculty development. Gene Zink is the chairman and chief executive officer of real estate and development firm Strategic Capital Partners LLC. The company partnered with the university in developing the UIndy Health Pavilion, which opened this fall.

The campaign, titled "UIndy Starts With You," is chaired by trustee Yvonne Shaheen. She donated $5 million earlier this year to fund the school's liberal arts, fine arts and science programs. Shaheen is the former president and chief executive officer of Long Electric Company, and has been on UIndy's board since 1992.
