Frank and Gina Day, entrepreneurs and owners of the historic Hotel Boulderado, are  making a $1.5 million gift to Metropolitan State University of Denver.

The gift will establish the Day Leadership Endowment and the Day Leadership Academy at MSU Denver’s School of Hospitality, according to a news release. The academy will offer mentoring programs and a professional hospitality online leadership certificate.

“Colorado’s hospitality industry has been formed by Day’s leadership,” Christian Hardigree, dean of School of Hospitality said in a statement.

A private networking reception to honor the Days, and to make an official announcement  is scheduled Wednesday on the university campus.
