An Opportunity to Invest in Future Business Leaders with a Christian Worldview
Since 1922, Samford University has delivered life-long business education to students through quality teaching, meaningful scholarship, and servant relationships, imbued by its Christian commitment. In order to sustain this legacy for the next generation, Samford needs a next generation building that will equip them for the future ahead.
Located directly behind the Harwell G. Davis Library and to the east of Mamie Mell Smith Residence Hall, the new Brock School of Business building will provide much needed classroom, office and meeting room space for the Samford and Birmingham community. A breathtaking glass atrium will be the center of this five-story building, but the true heart of the building will be a revived sense of learning, innovation and opportunity.
Amenities in the new building will include:
- 250-seat Auditorium
- Investment Trading Room
- 2 Computer Teaching Labs
- 14 Classrooms
- Interactive break-out rooms connected to many of the classrooms
- Common areas for students to collaborate, build community and promote identification with the business school
- Student business incubator
- A community resource forum able to host up to 400 guests for receptions, meetings and lectures
A new Brock School of Business Building will represent an investment in the development of professional and ethical business leaders in our communities and across the world. Partner with us and other alumni and local businesses to be an integral part of the Brock legacy.
We invite all alumni and community partners to join us to make this building possible. Gifts at all levels are greatly appreciated. Individual or corporate sponsorship opportunities are also available, including donor wall recognition beginning with a multi-year pledge of $5,000.
If interested about being a part of this special opportunity or have any questions please visit www.samford.edu/brockbuilding or contact the Brock School of Business at (205)726-2364.
What our alumni and friends are saying...
“To stay competitive with other universities in drawing top talent from around the nation, Samford must continue striving for excellence in its offerings. A major part of this effort will be the provision of state-of-the-art technology and facilities for students to engage the ever-changing world of trade.”

“Jackie Robinson once said ‘a life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.’ Universities are no different in this regard; they only matter in the way they impact lives. The legacy of the Brock School of Business and the energy created by our new building will impact lives beyond that which any of us could ever, ever, ever dream.”

“There is no doubt that our teaching – as well as student learning – will benefit from the technology, spaces and facilities this new building will provide.”
