If all goes as planned, we'll begin construction in a few weeks on a new home for the Brock School of Business. The major gifts for the building will come from our graduates and friends, and we are grateful for their generous support. But an item caught my eye a few days ago that reminded me of the sacrificial support provided by our faculty. Jennings Marshall reports that all current full-time faculty of the Brock School of Business (and a few adjuncts and faculty members who are retired) have made financial pledges to the effort. Amazing.
The world is better because of the strong commitment of Samford's faculty.
