|PARTNERS: Endowment Gift Opportunities
The Atkinson School is driven by a quest for excellence, a spirit of innovation and a celebration of achievement. In planning for the future, the School has identified a number of major priorities to help advance the mission of becoming a recognized leader in business education and an intellectual and economic engine for the region.
As a private institution, The Atkinson School receives no state funding or government assistance. As a result, we rely on the generous support of alumni, friends, and corporations to ensure that an education is accessible to all, including those with limited financial means. To enhance the competitiveness of our academic programs, we continue to seek funds to increase the available dollars for student financial aid. Opportunities exist for creating "named" endowed scholarships that recognize your appreciation for a faculty member, remember a loved one, or highlight your commitment to the Atkinson School.
The Atkinson School's position among America's top business schools is in no small measure the result of its superb faculty. Through their teaching and experience they contribute to the business world's knowledge base by developing business solutions to real world problems and challenges. Attracting and keeping these outstanding faculty benefits our students, the University, and the global business community. This is often done through the means of endowed chairs, named professorships and partnerships that provide support for outstanding faculty.
The Atkinson Graduate School of Management is housed in the Seeley G. Mudd Building on the Willamette University campus in Salem, Oregon and in the Brewery Blocks Tower in the Pearl District of Portland, Oregon. Both facilities offer wireless internet capabilities and space for studying and meetings.
