Haslam College of Business Increases Fundraising Goal to $200 Million

UT’s Haslam College of Business is increasing its goal for the Join the Journey: Investing in the Journey to the Top 25 Campaign from $175 million to $200 million.

“The overwhelming support of our alumni and friends here at the Haslam College of Business will allow us to continue pushing forward with our ambitious goals,” said Stephen Mangum, dean and Stokely Foundation Leadership Chair for the college. “The increased fundraising goal will support us as we seek to attract and retain internationally regarded faculty and expand our access mission by providing more support for students from low-income households.”

This fundraising goal is one of the most ambitious business school campaigns in the nation. The college began raising funds in recognition of its centennial anniversary in 2014. Approximately $170 million has been raised to date. The campaign ends December 31, 2020.

Plans associated with the campaign also include expanding the college’s living and learning communities for undergraduates and growing its graduate programs by providing more funds to attract top master’s and doctoral students.

The college enrolls more than 4,200 undergraduates and 400 graduate students. The college became UT’s first named college in 2014 after a historic $50 million gift from the James A. Haslam II (’52) family. Haslam is a former vice chair of the UT Board of Trustees and a founding member of the UT Foundation Board of Directors. He founded the company now known as Pilot Flying J.
