Giving Report

Endowment Funds

Highlights from 2000–2001

An $8.2 million gift from the Roy F. and Joann Cole Mitte Foundation to expand the honors program and offer 60 undergraduate and 15 MBA achievement-based scholarships per year.

A $7 million commitment from Roger and Tina Blackwell to name the executive residence “The Roger D. Blackwell Inn at Fisher College.”

A $1 million Nationwide Foundation Innovation Fund to enhance the college’s executive education programs.

A $25,000 gift from Thomas L. and Mary Wheeler to promote MBA internships through interaction with corporate executives. The Wheeler family has committed nearly $1.5 million to Fisher building and programmatic activities.

The Fisher College of Business has made great strides in building its resources in the past decade. With the conclusion of a successful $100 million campaign last year, the college continues to attract and retain the finest faculty and students. In concert with the university’s academic plan, the college is committed to continue building its endowment in five primary areas: 1) faculty recruitment and retention, 2) innovative teaching and course development, 3) MBA fellowship and program support, 4) leading edge executive education programs, and 5) undergraduate enrichment programs. These are vital if the Fisher College is to continue to build its reputation and value.

A new kind of donor

Roger Blackwell, professor of marketing, gave back to the college in a big way. He and his spouse Tina committed $7 million to the Fisher College in April 2001—the largest single gift ever made from a current faculty member at the university. The executive residence was named The Roger D. Blackwell Inn at Fisher College in their honor.
