Your Support Makes a Difference in the Fogelman College of Business and Economics
Donors are the lifeblood of the Fogelman College. With the continuing support of alumni and friends, the college will be able to grow and move forward with initiatives, and pair up with the top business schools in the country. With your support more students will be able to take advantage of these initiatives. We are trying to spotlight a few supporters whose gifts have made a difference for the FCBE and our students.
Professor Jesse W. Spiceland Endowed Graduate Scholarship
The Student Professional Development Endowed Fund
The student Professional Development Endowed Fund, established by George T. Johnson (BBA '70) and Betty Johnson (M.Ed '75), supports initiatives created to advance the professional development of the FCBE students. One of those initiatives is Fogelman Promise, a seven-prong initiative that aims to prepare students for life after college and help them thrive in the business world.' Fogelman promise goes beyond the classroom to train students in areas such as business etiquette, professionalism, fitness and ethics. From a firm handshake to a confident tone, students who complete the Promise program will enter the workforce with the skills they need to become valuable employees and responsible citizens.As an alum, your dollars can make a real difference to the success of this initiative and programs like it. Supporting student Professional Development strengthens the community, improves the college's reputation and ultimately increases the value of your degree.If you are interested in making a donation to one of these funds or any other areas of the Fogelman college, please contact Marianne Hartquist, Sr. Director of Development at M.Hartquist@memphis.edu or 901.678.3068.
