In October 2008, Boston College launched Light the World: The 150th Anniversary Campaign, its most ambitious fund drive in history. The campaign seeks to raise $1.5 billion by 2015 for the University’s strategic academic initiatives, and focuses on increasing alumni giving, volunteers to the university, and estate giving. As part of the campaign, the Carroll School of Management is raising funds to strengthen the following key priorities:
- Undergraduate education, including the undergraduate curriculum, advising, and co-curricular activities.
- Graduate education, through additional faculty support and graduate student programming.
- Teaching and research, specifically new professorships, faculty fellowships, and research funds.
- Ethics and leadership programming through the Winston Center for Leadership and Ethics, which gathers scholars, religious and business leaders, students, and the BC and Boston communities to explore highly topical issues in ethics and leadership.
- Seminars and conferences to be hosted by the Center for Asset Management, which brings together faculty and the asset management community to discuss the latest issues and innovations in finance.
Future issues of Carroll Capital will focus in detail on the above priorities. To learn more about Light the World, click here.
