The building that houses the Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law will be named in honor of a big-ticket donor: cellular communications entrepreneur John Scarpa.

The law school this month announced a $15 million donation from the John F. Scarpa Foundation, which is in addition to a $5 million gift he made in 2015 to bolster the school’s entrepreneurship programming. The new funds will be used to expand the school’s entrepreneurship offerings and establish an endowed professorship for that purpose. The law school building is being renamed John F. Scarpa Hall as a result.
