University of South Alabama, Mitchell College of Business Library and Career Center - $250,000
The Mitchell College of Business will use this funding for its new library, reading room, and career resource office. The University has raised $1.4 million in private donations for this project.
“A well stocked library is a critical resource for students,” said Shelby. “The University of South Alabama’s Mitchell College of Business has consistently shown that they train the leaders of tomorrow. The library will help students equip themselves with the knowledge they need to be successful in the business world.”
