The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, College of Business Administration will celebrate its 100-year anniversary in 2014. In recognition of this historic milestone, the college has announced a new initiative to be the cornerstone of the centennial celebration.
As part of the college’s role in UT’s journey to become a Top 25 public research institution, the Century Campaign seeks to grow the college’s endowment from its current level of approximately $74.2 million to $100 million by 2014.
Funding priorities include the College Fund for Business Administration, entrepreneurship and innovation, faculty support, the Global Leadership Scholars program, MBA scholarships, need-based undergraduate scholarships, and technology support.
“Private support is more critical than ever,” said Jan R. Williams, dean of the College of Business Administration and Stokely Foundation Leadership Chair. “For us to continue to deliver a world-class education, and as the college leads the university in its goal to be a Top 25 public institution, we must strive to increase our endowment and alumni participation.”
The College of Business Administration has approximately 40,000 living alumni.
