WSU Barton School of Business Deans Fund

This campaign ended on April 25, 2018, but you can still make a gift to Wichita State University by clicking here!

Help WSU and W. Frank Barton School of Business Dean, Dr. Anand Desai, have a lasting impact on students by supporting the Dean's Fund for Excellence!

Supporting the WSU College of Business Dean's Fund for Excellence provides critical assistance for students who truly want to make a difference in the world!  

As Dean of the College of Business, Dr. Desai is responsible for many projects and programs that are unfortunately outside of what his regular budget can support. The reason the Dean's Fund is so important is because it provides unrestricted dollars within the College of Business that he can use to support projects like:

  1. Professor for a Day - a program designed to increase student industry knowledge by hosting executives in the classroom for a day. 
  2. Increase learning by partnering with the Career Development Center to bring national speakers to WSU. The 2017 national speaker was Hillary Corna, best selling author and Senior Executive for Toyota Asia.
  3. Improve classroom technology so our students can continue to learn with the proper tools to keep them competitive in the job market.
  4. Enhance teaching and research opportunities through faculty professional development so our students can continue to learn from the best.

By making a gift to the Dean's Fund, you are ensuring that the Dean can have a tremendous impact on the student experience. We've set a very modest goal for this project that we hope to achieve very early in the campaign. If we can do that, there's no telling how far we can go. We're about $50,000 away from our goal for the end of the school year, with your help getting your friends and classmates involved, that's not out of reach either!
