Why we need your support

  • Innovate with new curricula and signature experiential learning opportunities
  • Increase retention of students, faculty and staff
  • Expand international engagement opportunities
  • Better support faculty in their research efforts
  • Improve student placement with internships and employment
  • Create a better business climate in the state by providing business services to small businesses, organizations and startup companies
  • Upgrade our facilities for a more productive and enhanced learning environment


How you can help

 

Greatest Needs
Giving to our greatest needs provides the flexible resources needed to fulfill our mission and support our priorities. This fund supports students in critical areas, such as tutoring and mentoring services, and assists faculty to be leaders in their fields. Such support helps to sustain programming and launch new initiatives. With these resources, we can adapt quickly to developments in business education and weather budgetary and fiscal uncertainties.

Scholarships
The Scholarship Fund provides financial aid to our students, making a great education possible and reducing the burden of debt after graduation. The fund may also be used to provide emergency assistance for tuition and other University expenses when a student experiences unexpected economic hardship.

 

Student Enrichment

This will help provide student enrichment activities and programs within the Chambers College of Business and Economics for student trips, travel, conference and/or event registration, case competitions, internships and other student experimental learning activities to provide one in a lifetime learning opportunities outside of the traditional classroom.
