Schoolcraft College soon will be adding an important facility that will benefit students and the community in the key industry of Southeast Michigan thanks to a generous philanthropic gift, the largest single gift commitment by an individual that the College has received.   

The Frank E. and Bessie Angileri Quality Institute, to be housed in the VisTaTech Center on Schoolcraft’s Livonia campus, will offer a venue to interested students, faculty and industry professionals to convene and explore issues and potential solutions that advance the standards and best practices of automotive quality control. 

Its benefactor, Frank E. Angileri, is a retired SQA (Supplier Quality Assurance) engineer from Ford Motor Company. He was born in Sicily and holds a degree in economics from the University of Palermo. The Angileri Quality Institute is also named in honor of Angileri’s late wife, Bessie.

The automotive industry is vital to Southeast Michigan and our country, and we’re proud that in the very near future we will have a first-rate facility right here at Schoolcraft College that will contribute to its success.”
