LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A family foundation and Gallup are giving $30 million to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to establish the Don Clifton Strengths Institute.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1QbBU1W ) that it’s one of the biggest gifts in the university’s history. The money will be spent on several purposes serving Clifton’s legacy. Some will be used to construct a building for the College of Business Administration building.

Clifton, who died in 2003, founded Selection Research Inc. in Lincoln in 1969 after teaching at the university for 19 years. Clifton founded strengths psychology, which identifies and uses people’s strengths to maximize vocational performance.

Selection Research acquired the Gallup organization in 1988, and Clifton became Gallup’s chairman four years after founder George Gallup died.
