Nation IN BRIEF : MASSACHUSETTS : Harvard Seeks to Raise $2.1 Billion

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Harvard University is launching what is believed to be the biggest single fund-raising campaign in American history with a quest to raise $2.1 billion over the next five years. The school has a $500-million head start due to early pledges and donations. Nearly half the goal will go toward the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Harvard's undergraduate college, which hopes to hire about 40 more faculty.
