Business Success Center

Barry & Dana Collier speak at the USF Muma College of Business
Business Success Center

For the third time in the last twelve months, the USF Muma College of Business has received a multi-million dollar gift from an alumnus. Florida businessman Barry Collier and his wife, Dana, gave the College $10.85 million. But this time, instead of naming a school after them, the gift creates the “Collier Student Success Center.” It brings together a half dozen programs designed to help students graduate on time with the skills that will help them find jobs in today’s competitive business world. We hear from the Colliers, as well as another USF graduate who their generosity has helped, on University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
