The Pamplin School of Business fosters the education of a new generation of global leaders to change the world for the better. The generous support from our friends and alumni is already helping our students and faculty reach new heights, to make change. Thanks to our donors, our students and community are gaining invaluable knowledge, experience, skills and opportunities to become intellectual and innovative leaders.
Look at a few recent examples of how donations have made a significant difference both on The Bluff and beyond.
In order to continue to grow and build on established success, there are three main areas where your support of our innovative programs and state of the art resources will have the biggest impact are:
Preparing students with experience to go with their education
Our innovative professional development program — the P4 — supports students throughout their academic career by providing them with the skills they need to succeed in today's dynamic professional world. From strength and interest analysis, to mock interviews, resume workshops, and dress for success seminars, and, finally, to job shadows, community service projects, and professional internships, students proactively develop professional skills and learn how to market those skills. Running a successful professional development program — which includes not only the specific activities listed above but also networking events in Seattle, San Francisco and Portland, campus speakers, and alumni engagement — requires annual funding of $30,000. To support the P4 program, and the ambitious students partaking, with a donation please email us at P4@up.edu To assist with specific activities such as internships, job shadows and community service projects, please fill out the P4 Engagement Form.
Opportunities for students to connect with organizations and participate in various activities
UP provides an opportunity for any student to become involved with numerous student-run organizations, creating opportunities to meet fellow students with similar interests. There are nine active clubs within the PSOB. Each of these clubs provide students with the opportunity to pursue leadership roles, network with business professionals, gain real life business experience through professional conferences and community projects, and relate business to current ethical, cultural, and political issues. You can learn about each of these organizations and their activities here.
Some examples of how your donation to PSOB's student associations might be used include:
