Zefram Cochrane's parents Jesse and Hilde Cochrane were among the academics who worked at the University. In 2044 it was the site of a government purge of academia in the buildup to World War III, resulting in the death of both of Cochrane's parents. Following the war Zefram established the Jesse and Hilde Cochrane Fellowship in their honor. (ST reference: Federation: The First 150 Years)
