Amcor is pledging more than $10 million to the School of Packaging at Michigan State University.
The cash will be used in a variety of ways, including modernization of facilities and technologies at the East Lansing school as well as creation of an endowed chair of packaging sustainability.
"The funding, which forms part of Amcor's commitment to supporting the next generation of responsible packaging talent, will be used to help the school further its high academic standards," the plastic packaging company said.
Amcor CEO Ron Delia called the money "an important investment in the future of the packaging industry which will be defined by responsible, sustainable packaging solutions."
"MSU already attracts the greatest talent in the industry and Amcor is committed to fostering the boldest thinkers as they make ground-breaking advancements in more sustainable packaging solutions," he said in a statement.
MSU is a powerhouse in packaging education with nearly 700 students, both in undergraduate and graduate programs. The packaging school, part of MSU's College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, is the largest in the nation.
