DETROIT (AP) - Wayne State University is getting $200,000 from a California-based foundation to support the Levin Center at Wayne Law.

The Detroit school says the money is from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation of Menlo Park.

The grant falls under the foundation’s Madison Initiative, which seeks to help create conditions in which Congress can deliberate, negotiate and compromise in ways that work for most Americans. It’s an effort to deal with issues of political polarization.

Launched in 2015, the Levin Center strives to educate future attorneys, business leaders, legislators and public servants on their role overseeing public and private institutions. The center is named after former Democratic U.S. Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan.

Levin is chairman of the Levin Center and is on the law school’s faculty.
