The Achieve! Campaign for the College of Management
The College of Management exceeded its $30 million goal as part of the North Carolina State University’s Achieve! Campaign
The seven-year fund-raising effort officially ended on June 30, 2008, and results were announced by the university at a celebration held on Sept. 19. The final tally showed that the College of Management exceeded its goal by nearly $600,000. Campus-wide, the campaign was the most successful ever conducted by NC State, placing the university among an elite group of colleges and universities that have raised more than $1 billion.
This was the college’s first major campaign and contributions are already at work, supporting scholarships and fellowships for students, professorships for faculty, and research, program development, facilities and equipment, and other efforts to continue developing the depth and strength of the college. Additional resources will become available as endowments committed during the campaign mature.
“Exceeding our goal was indeed an achievement for a college that has been in existence for just 16 years,” said Ira R. Weiss, dean since 2004. “We are very grateful for the alumni and friends of the college – including members of our own faculty, staff and advisory boards – who stepped up to help us reach this ambitious goal,” Weiss said.
“Their contributions validate and enable us to work toward fulfilling our vision, which is to be a leader in management education with a focus on technology and
innovation, entrepreneurial programs and international initiatives,” he said.
