Generous corporate and foundation support continues to enhance the College
The College of Business Administration has received several gifts and grants this year from foundations and corporations who have supported the Commerce & Finance Building renovation as well as ensured the professional preparation of our students and faculty to meet the challenges of the business environment.
Through the tremendous generosity of the Mary G. Stange Charitable Trust and Credit Union ONE, the stunning St. Ignatius Chapel, in honor of President Emeritus Maureen A. Fay, O.P., has become a reality in the Commerce & Finance Building. The Chapel provides the College’s students and the University community with a reflective and sacred space where Mass is celebrated daily.
The Ford Motor Company Global Learning Center continues to provide a superb educational environment for our undergraduate and graduate students. Wireless and technologically capable, the tiered classroom has been the academic locus, especially for the College’s MBA program. Bank One (now Chase) funded the Leadership Hall and Comerica Bank supported a premier classroom.
The DaimlerChrysler Corporation Fund provided the College with funding for maintaining continuous improvement, professional development, and attendance at conferences where faculty gain knowledge of new and evolving business trends. Support from the National City Bank of the Midwest–Michigan and the Heritage Optical Center, Inc., have also provided valuable assistance in the creation for an outstanding learning environment.
Every donation strengthens our vision for the future. Please continue to help our students prepare for their business careers by making a gift by June 30.
