John W. Clanton ’84 has committed $300,000 to endow a faculty fellowship at Mays. His gift creates the John W. Clanton ’84 Endowed Faculty Fellowship to support the teaching, research and professional development of Mays faculty members.

“John’s generous support will help us compete for and retain the very best faculty,” Dean Jerry Strawser said. “Top faculty are the key to having great programs and providing unique learning opportunities for our students. John’s most generous gift will further Mays’ goals of attracting the most talented pool of professors possible.”

Clanton’s gift counts in the One Spirit One Vision Campaign, the university’s multi-year fundraising effort. The campaign goal is to help Texas A&M attain national top 10 status among public universities.

“Mays Business School’s leadership has articulated a clear vision for the future, and has demonstrated the commitment, courage and tenacity to achieve that vision,” Clanton said. “I am thankful to be able to participate in such an exciting process with such a dedicated group of leaders.”
