The Las Vegas Sun is reporting that Harrah's Entertainment will donate at least $25 million to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
The university has said it will reveal the biggest corporate donation in its history on Monday.
Harrah's officials would not confirm the amount of the donation.
A spokesperson said the donation would come from Harrah's Foundation.
It plans to use the funds to launch the INNovation Village, a state-of-the-art hospitality campus designed to educate future industry leaders.
The Sun reports the village will include a new academic building to accommodate 4,000 students, a hotel and conference center, restaurant and retail space.
The paper says the cost of the project was estimated two years ago at $200 million.
