CoBPA Funding Priorities
Student Leadership Scholars | Scholarships will support students with established high-achieving academic records and demonstrated leadership potential.
Pancratz Career Development Center | Students will attain the right employment and internship experiences, while receiving the tools and techniques needed to successfully move from the classroom to the board room.
Experiential Learning | Today’s students thrive in interactive, real-life settings. The college needs flexibility to fund new initiatives based on students’ interests and significant learning potential.
Endowed Faculty | Dynamic faculty are role models whose research and teaching brings a buzz to the college that both excites and engages students.
Executives-in-Residence | Students learn from exceptional role models when they hear vivid examples of experiences that may very well define their approach to a future career.
International Education | In our global society, international exposure is vital for students to prepare them for the ever-expanding marketplace. Support in this area will offset costs associated with exchanges and study-abroad experiences.
Curriculum Venture Fund | The college must continually keep pace with today’s rapidly changing marketplace. Building new curriculum ventures helps the college launch successful, new academic programs.
Dean’s Excellence Fund | Support to this fund will provide resources necessary for existing programming, marketing, student activities and special interests of the dean which enhance the college’s core mission.
Department of Entrepreneurship | Our program has already earned accolades and we wish to build on this success. Support here will help us grow to meet the needs of the students and inspire young adults to think big!
Financial Services Institute | A traditional strength of the college will rise to the next level. The Institute will prepare the next generation of financial leaders from community to global banking.
Professional Sales Center | Much like an outstanding sales professional, this comprehensive program will establish rapport, gain trust, and determine needs through a comprehensive academic sales curriculum, and provide vast experiential learning opportunities.
Technology and Renovations | We must ensure our learning environments are conducive to today’s demanding needs by upgrading classroom and teaching space and continually improving technological capabilities.
Leadership Center | UND will build a leadership program that integrates workshop and leadership advancement programs, endowed faculty, academic courses, scholarships, international study, and centralized career placement. The center will impact students from all corners of campus, defining leaders in 193 areas of study.
Social Entrepreneurship | Where others see problems, social entrepreneurs see opportunities. Your partnership will make a dramatic lifelong impact, not only at UND, but in communities throughout the region.
Annual Gifts | Annual gifts sustain every day excellence and provide resources necessary to support annual funding needs within the college.
