Dean's Excellence Fund

Recognizing the impact donors have made at the School of Business 

During the course of the Boundless Campaign, donors created countless outcomes for School of Business faculty and students. One of these accomplishments was that an unprecedented $1.6 million was raised in support of the Dean’s Excellence Fund. These contributions have helped transform the School of Business in significant ways over the past six years, including a/an:

  • Strengthened commitment to STUDENT INVESTMENT. A new level of professional development support — including increased merit awards, learning centers and mentor opportunities — provides business students with the resources they need to succeed after graduation.
  • Heightened dedication to FACULTY ENRICHMENT. We increased funding to support faculty — including professional development, research grants and presentation opportunities — reinforcing our commitment to recognizing excellence in scholarly work and advancement of students.
  • Increase in TECHNOLOGY ENHANCEMENTS. The School of Business’ purchase of state-of-the-art electronics, software and programming materials keeps our students and faculty competitive, informed and at the forefront of innovation.
  • New level of RECRUITMENT AND OPERATIONS. Investment in recruiting and operations has stimulated the engagement of local and national business leaders in our programs and curriculum and supports our recent sharp growth in student enrollment.
