The Dean's Circle 

Dean’s Circle members are donors who make gifts of $1,000 or more to the Shidler College of Business Advancement Fund.

  • Empowering student success through aid for tuition and funding for student activities.
  • Equipping faculty with the resources they need to advance their research which can inform and serve our greater community.
  • Providing seed funds to launch new initiatives.
  • Growing and expanding the college’s alumni network.
