Donor Spotlight: Norman & Lindy Radow

Norman and Lindy Radow
Norman J. Radow has been passionate about KSU for more than two decades and has a lifelong belief in the importance and the value of humanities and social sciences education in our country. His transformative gift of $9 million to KSU and the Norman J. Radow College of Humanities and Social Sciences (RCHSS) is a powerful demonstration of his, and his wife Lindy Radow’s, commitment to RCHSS. Their impact is felt in a variety of ways, from the recently dedicated study space, named “The Bev” for his mother Beverly Radow, and located in the newly renovated lobby space in the Social Sciences building, to funding the Radow Institute for Social Equity (RISE), the Lindy Radow Scholarship, and the Paul & Beverly Radow Lecture Series on Jewish Life. Norman Radow’s relationship with KSU began in 1999 when he reached out to the University to discuss student housing needs, which resulted in his joining the KSU Foundation, and the rest, as they say, is history.
