DolphinsRoss_2013 [1]ANN ARBOR, Mich.–┬áNew York real estate magnate and Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is donating $200 million to the University of Michigan for its business school and athletics programs, the largest single donation to the school and among the most generous in higher education history.

The money will be split between the Stephen M. Ross School of Business and University of Michigan Athletics, and raises Ross’ total giving to his alma mater to more than $313 million, the Ann Arbor school said in a statement Wednesday. The Athletic Campus is expected to be named the Stephen M. Ross Athletic Campus.

“Stephen Ross’ vision has always been about the ability of facilities to transform the human experience,” school President Mary Sue Coleman said in the statement. “He understands the power of well-conceived spaces, and his generosity will benefit generations of Michigan students, faculty and coaches.”
