College Priorities

The following are our immediate funding priorities to ensure our students receive the best business education possible. Our priorities vary from broad to specific, with each being necessary to prepare our students for the challenges of tomorrow.

  • Innovation Fund: Gifts to the Innovation Fund directly support the College of business, assisting in the support of our initiatives which include:
    • Student awards/recognition for specialized high performance associated with a class or academic event (research papers or presentations, guest speaking, exceptional community service and leadership).
    • Regional class trips or student registration at related professional conferences.
    • Guest speakers and special events.
    • New specialized applications, software and loaner hardware for classroom innovation.
  • Student Scholarships:There are many opportunities to directly support a College of Business student. Check out our College of Business Scholarships.
