Fall 2017 Newsletter

At the Lucas College of Business, we are well aware that both large and small acts of kindness can make a significant difference in a student's life.  Therefore, when a particularly generous act occurs, it's important to us to publicly acknowledge it. Over the summer, business leaders Gloria ('78, MBA '79) and Michael Chiang made an extraordinary $2.5 million gift commitment to support scholarships and student professional development. Thank you Gloria and Michael!
