New Gift Expands Trott Visiting Professorship

Health care executive and Ohio State University alumna Kara J. Trott has given $4 million to The Ohio State University. A portion of the gift will be used to expand Richard W. Trott Distinguished Visiting Professorship at Knowlton.

“Kara Trott’s gift to honor the memory of her late father—renowned architect Dick Trott—will contribute significantly to the enrichment of the Knowlton School’s educational mission,” said Dorothée Imbert, Hubert C. Schmidt Professor and director of the Knowlton School. “This gift further elevates the Richard W. Trott Distinguished Visiting Professorship, bringing distinguished practitioners and academics to carry sustained interactions with Knowlton students and faculty, as well as to strengthen the connection between architecture, landscape architecture, planning and urban design. Kara’s generosity will allow us to provide exceptional experiences to our design community, while strengthening Dick Trott’s legacy.”
