Program support allows the campus to enhance both its academic as well as its co curricular and student centered programs. In addition, faculty and staff have benefited from the generosity of donors who have targeted their gifts toward areas that promote faculty research, professional development, and leadership skills.
Pictured at left are Mary Anne and Eric Linde, who established the Linde Family Business Mentoring Program Fund at our campus, which gives junior year students enrolled in the baccalaureate degree in Business to enhance their educational experience through advanced instruction and participation in special programs and projects. Students obtain first-hand knowledge of the business world by being paired with a professional in their field of choice.
