SUMMARY: The Board of Advisors for the College of Business has once again taken a leadership role at JMU. 


The Board of Advisors for the College of Business has once again taken a leadership role at JMU.  Following the initial discussions of raising money for construction of a CoB Learning Complex, the Board stepped forward to support the project through their individual gifts and their outreach to other alumni.  Every member of the Board of Advisors for 2015-2016 has contributed to or made a pledge to the project.
 
To date, over $7 million has been raised toward the $15 million goal. The CoB Learning Complex will include a new building and a renovated Zane Showker Hall. Total cost of the project is approximately $80 million with primary support from the commonwealth of Virginia. The new part of the Learning Complex is set to open for fall 2020. The Showker Renovation is scheduled for completion by the start of the fall 2021 semester.
 
“We are so grateful to our Board of Advisors for all they do for the College, including their significant role they are playing in this project.  Without their support, we would not be this far along in raising funds for this critically needed new and renovated space for the College of Business,” says CoB Dean Mary Gowan. “The members of the Board generously share their time and expertise to help the College of Business maintain relevant and challenging programs that engage students and prepare them to make the difference in business, communities and the world.”
