Rodney Erickson and his wife, Shari, will give $1 million to the For the Future Campaign.
The gift will benefit the Arboretum at Penn State, the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences and the Smeal College of Business.
Half of the donation will endow a future space or program at the arboretum and the other half will be used to create an early career professorship.
