DEAR ALUMNI, FRIENDS, & STUDENTS,
"Better, Bigger, Ranked" took on a whole new meaning on June 2, when the West Virginia University Foundation kicked off A State of Minds: The Campaign for West Virginia's University. This comprehensive fundraising campaign will run through the end of 2015 with a total University goal of raising $750 million.
The College of Business and Economics got a huge boost on June 13 from Doug Van Scoy, B&E's national campaign chairman, and his wife, Pam. The Van Scoys presented a gift of $1.5 million to the College, the first major gift to WVU in the public phase of the campaign.
As you read the article about the gift in this newsletter, one thing is very evident: B&E is moving forward with a very strong and very distinct momentum. That will be critical as we work to take our business school to even higher levels.
We have assembled a strong volunteer organization for this comprehensive campaign with successful alumni and friends of the College from across the country. This organization is committed to raising the funds we need to propel us upward. Our priorities are to attract great students and faculty, maintain and create great programs, and build great facilities with a great name on the College.
On behalf of this volunteer organization, National Campaign Chairman Doug Van Scoy, Honorary Campaign Chairman Governor Gaston Caperton, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the College, please join us in this important fundraising campaign. Together we can obtain the resources necessary to build an even greater business school.
