Annual Giving to DEF Delivers Big Returns

Career development and hands-on learning were underlying priorities for the use of $263k in gifts made to the Dean’s Excellence Fund in 2013-2014.  While the job market heats up, it remains a fiercely competitive place for new graduates to prove themselves in the workplace.  Read in this year’s DEF round up, two ready-to-work impact stories that are positioning our students to compete for jobs. 

In addition, annual giving funds were used to award 48 summer research grants for faculty to advance their scholarly work.  Learn how two professors advanced research in entrepreneurship and hospitality and tourism for the Charleston region – made possible by our donors’ generosity. 

The Dean's Excellence Fund is the most direct way to make an immediate impact on the School of Business.
