Faculty, Student and Programmatic Support

A $40 million gift

Continuing a pattern of transformative philanthropy to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Natalie and Jim Haslam, Dee and Jimmy Haslam, and Crissy and Bill Haslam have made a $40 million gift to the Haslam College of Business aimed at the continued elevation of its national reputation and mission of developing future leaders.

The gift will directly support the hiring of preeminent faculty; enhanced faculty research excellence through additional named professorships and summer support; programmatic initiatives to increase diversity in the college’s student body; the expansion of undergraduate honors programming; and an increase in graduate student fellowships. The Haslam family’s gift also allows the college to pursue additional donations in select priority areas through “matching” by which other philanthropists can see their donations doubled in impact.
