Smith was receiving his honorary doctorate, the family, faculty, friends, and students were shocked and amazed of his announcement that the graduates would receive a fully financed undergraduate degree. Robert F. Smith is Founder, Chairman & CEO of Vista Equity Partners and a billionaire investor. It seems that his level of generosity has incited some other billionaires to take on similar acts regarding education.
