IBM is donating one of its Intelligent Cluster computing solutions to Union College, providing the school with the greatest computing capability of any undergraduate liberal arts college in the nation.

The announcement was made Saturday at the dedication of the College's new Peter Irving Wold Center. The $22 million, three-story, 35,000-square-foot building housing interdisciplinary research facilities, classroom space and an advanced computing lab is the latest milestone in Union's long history of integrating engineering with the traditional liberal arts and sciences.

The announcement was picked up by dozens of media outlets, including the Associated Press, the Wall Street Journal and others.
