As you read the stories, you will see we continue to make remarkable progress on our vision to advance the world’s prosperity – the vision underlying our Strategic Plan – by being a vibrant learning community that creates impactful knowledge and develops transformational leaders. Our mission statement is comprised of three components: be a vibrant learning organization, create impactful knowledge, and develop transformational leaders.

This issue spotlights examples of our notable alumni who have stepped up to help us create exciting opportunities in the realm of innovation and entrepreneurship. Several programs stem from the activities by and commitments from these notable alumni – such as the creation of the Mays Innovation Research Center, the dedication of the McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship, and the endowment of our Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans Program.

Through these and other activities, Mays Business School is strengthening its commitment to the Mays Grand Challenge Area of Entrepreneurship – one of three that emerged during a months-long grassroots effort in early 2017 as part of the school’s Strategic Plan. All of our efforts, past and future, are made possible by our generous former students and external partners, in concert with our talented faculty and staff.

Looking ahead – this year marks the 50th Anniversary of our beloved business school. I invite you to join us at our celebrations and share your memories and photos of “Mays over 50 years” via email or through using our social media tag, #maysmemories.

Thank you for your support as we write the next chapter in the remarkable story that is Mays Business School.

Gig ’em!
