College of Business

Our Priorities

The college has identified six key priorities which are highlighted below.

  • Expand student support

    Privately funded scholarships enable the college to attract and retain high-performing students.

  • Attract and develop top faculty

    Private support is needed to create named, endowed professorships and visiting professorships that provide the University with the resources to attract top faculty who create and lead world-class academic programs.

  • Pave a professional path

    Help graduates gain a competitive advantage with a gift that supports the Redbird Career Portfolio, which creates opportunities for students to refine their professionalism, strengthen their soft-skill development, and develop career strategies.

  • Sustain excellence

    Generous, ongoing support for the excellence funds within the college and each department allows for a quick response to opportunities that benefit students and faculty, while enhancing the college’s reputation for academic excellence.

  • Collaborate across disciplines

    Philanthropic partners are needed to help the college’s centers and institutes attain a heightened level of excellence in promoting financial literacy and managing data.

  • Solve problems in a complex world

    Gifts supporting hands-on learning labs will unite experts from across academic disciplines to learn, create, and promote innovative business.
