KNOXVILLE — The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, College of Business Administration will celebrate its 100 year anniversary in 2014. In recognition of this significant historic milestone, the college has announced a new campaign to be the cornerstone of the centennial celebration.
As part of the college’s role in UT Knoxville’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 Dean Jan R. Williams. “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.”
