A transformational $2,000,000 initiative to support the Robert W. Plaster School of Business and Entrepreneurship.
Over the next several years, the student-focused Plaster School of Business & Entrepreneurship major gift initiative will boost Lindenwood’s efforts to enhance the quality of the student experience and increase student retention. With small class sizes and frequent one-on-one interactions, Plaster School students are able to create quality relationships with faculty and receive personalized academic experience .While we have made an impressive amount of progress, we are still far from reaching our uncompromised goals. Additional funding will allow us to continue our efforts to build and institution like no other.
Finance and Data Analytics Lab
The Plaster School of Business & Entrepreneurship wants to offer its students a state-of-the-art learning environment. A Finance/Data Analytics Lab would allow our students to apply their classroom learning to the real world. This lab would help Lindenwood students make a seamless transition from student to career in a region and career field with an abundance of opportunities.
Endowed Student Scholarships & Professorships
Currently, no scholarships are dedicated exclusively to Plaster School students. In order to continue to attract more top-quality students and establish a reputation as a premiere university for business and entrepreneurship, scholarships are essential. As Lindenwood continues to attract the top students and the reputation of the business programs grown, the need and demand for more high-quality faculty will also rise.
Experiential learning opportunities are paramount to developing students who will flourish not just in the classroom but also in their future careers. While the rewards of experiential programs are immeasurable, the cost to produce or partake in them is something that many students imply cannot afford. Gifts of any size can be used to help reduce students’ costs, affording them experiences they can use the rest of their lives.
Student internships are an integral part of higher education. To ensure that Lindenwood students will be competitive in the business marketplace and to keep pace with other universities that are expanding their internship programs, the Plaster School of Business & Entrepreneurship must actively seek additional funds and internship resources.
