Dear Alumni and Friends,

This is an exciting time for the College of Business Administration at Kent State University. Our national and worldwide rankings continue to climb, and our educational environment is more collaborative than ever. Most importantly, we are attracting talented students from all over the world and helping them develop the skills and knowledge they will need to transform their future companies and organizations.

Your gifts make it possible to provide our students with the kind of transformational learning opportunities that set Kent State University apart. Through your generosity, students can learn in modern facilities with the latest teaching innovations and study in active learning classrooms. However you choose to give, you make a direct impact on our students, faculty and business community.

As dean of the College of Business Administration, I am honored to serve our remarkable students, faculty and staff, and I am grateful for the generosity of our alumni and friends. Your support and partnership empowers us not only to aspire to ever-greater goals, but also to achieve them. By investing in our future, we can continue to evolve to meet the changing needs of our business students – who in turn will shape a better world for us all.

With gratitude,
