General information

Support Our Centers of Excellence

Under the leadership of Dean Nicole Woolsey Biggart, the UC Davis Graduate School of Management established several Centers of Excellence. These centers link the campus to the business community through a variety of activities and research that comprise supporting entrepreneurship, supporting individual investor welfare and corporate responsibility, women and leadership, and corporate and non-profit consulting work.

Your financial contribution will help further the mission of these centers through support of related outreach programs, educational initiatives, infrastructure support and research.

You can play a vital role in the continued growth and success of these new initiatives by directly supporting a Center of Excellence. Please contact Leigh Ann Hartman, Executive Director of Development and External Relations for additional information.
