Uncategorized | Mays Impacts - Part 11

In a survey of Mays Business Online readers this November, the majority of 235 respondents rated the e-magazine’s quality as “good” and reported the site as “fairly easy to navigate.” While 85 percent of respondents indicated they’re most interested in reading about Mays news and events, stories about former students and the unique achievements of faculty, staff and current students weren’t far behind.

We also heard from many about what else we need to focus on and what we can do to improve. Though there was not a consensus, several respondents asked for more details on the smaller donations that are the lifeblood of any institution. Look for those details this spring, when we’ll turn our attention to the subject of smaller gifts of support that add up to big impacts for our business students and programs.
