Two years into the public phase of the Give Light Campaign, the Hankamer School of Business is 80 percent of the way to achieving our $125 million goal. With significant resources being infused into student scholarships, new faculty chairs and research funding, the future of the Hankamer School of Business—and future business leaders—is truly bright.
“The key to the success of the Give Light Campaign is serving the interests of partners who want to impact future principled business leaders,” Trey Hagins, managing director of development for the Business School, said. “From the beginning, Dean Terry Maness provided strong leadership and direction as our team of development professionals worked with him to outline the Business School’s needs as we look at future growth and the continued rise of the School’s profile. We are grateful for his support and commitment to the future of the Hankamer School of Business. We look forward to working just as closely with our new dean, Sandeep Mazumder, who joined the Business School in July.”
With Maness retired, the Hankamer School of Business will move forward and build upon this incredible success with the William E. Crenshaw Endowed Dean Mazumder.
Business School alumni have embraced the call to support, representing more than 65 percent of donors to a campaign that has raised nearly $100 million in total support for scholarships, program resources and endowed faculty positions. Led by Maness, the Business School’s faculty and staff have engaged with University Advancement team members to connect academic program initiatives with alumni, parents and friends who have a passion for excellence in higher education. For example, donors may choose to honor their favorite professor with a named endowment or, as a business leader, they can support areas to expand on the Business School’s excellence in areas like ethics, analytics or entrepreneurship.
The Baylor Family has pledged and given more than $38 million in scholarship support for business students since the start of the campaign and helped establish more than 100 endowed scholarships to support students. Baylor alumni, parents and friends have also created five new endowed faculty positions in free enterprise, lab-to-market entrepreneurship and to target research and teaching priorities. The Business School’s endowment has increased by more than $63.5 million, creating significant and enduring resources that will ensure future generations of business leaders have the resources they need to succeed during their time at Baylor.
The future of the Hankamer School of Business truly is bright!
