Why Should I Give to Poole?

Gifts to the Poole College of Management change lives. Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of Poole College donors, our college continues to develop business leaders with an entrepreneurial mindset and analytical problem solving skills, generate impactful business research and serve our communities.

  • Poole Leadership Challenge helps students build core competencies.
  • The Bell Family Foundation focused their support on career services with a significant gift to impact how Poole College guides current and future students in identifying and securing their career paths.

Faculty and Scholarships

  • Poole College is able to recruit the nation’s top scholars and industry experts as represented in our 2019 new faculty.
  • Alumnus Matt Hong (‘94) sought to honor his father, Donald Hong, by establishing an endowment to support the high caliber faculty needed to teach our Poole College students.
  • Nine Poole College faculty received awards for summer research in 2019 in recognition of outstanding research productivity of tenured and tenure-track faculty in top tier journals.

Organization Excellence and Resource Development

  • Gifts have contributed to building a culture of inclusivity and respect which resulted in Poole College receiving recognition by the University for Excellence in Diversity.
  • To allow for resources to expand to the entire college, Poole College created an Office of Global Programs from the department initially focused on facilitating undergraduate student participation in study abroad programs.
