Campaign Priorities

Student Success through Scholarships

  • Double the number of scholarships which would provide tuition assistance to a greater number of COB students.
  • Increase scholarship funding by raising $6 million, thereby giving a transformative business education to more students, especially those from underserved communities.

Teaching and Technology

  • Secure the first endowed professorship in the COB to enhance the recruitment and retention of the highest-quality educators in the nation and world. 
  • Update COB technology to provide our students with extensive experience as well as a keen focus on mastering business analytics and data visualization.

Center for Small Business (CSB)

  • Expand classroom-community partnerships that connect student teams with small businesses and entrepreneurs. The students provide the businesses with critical analysis and technical management assistance needed to start, stabilize, and grow their companies. At the same time, Sacramento State students gain valuable hands-on learning experiences that can advance their careers quickly after graduation.
  • Seek programmatic endowments to open up more opportunities for partnerships with local businesses, provide more practical experiences for COB students, and bring new workshops on campus hosted by CSB—one of the oldest and largest centers of its kind in the United States.
