Partners for Excellence Endowment: Forge ahead with the College of Business

Strengthen academic rigor, help attract and recruit top-notch faculty, and ensure strong industry partnerships.

Originally established 50 years ago by the first dean of the college, Dr. Donald W. Dobler, the Partners for Excellence Endowment provides ongoing discretionary funds for scholarships, faculty awards, technology upgrades, and areas of greatest need within the college.

Dean Dobler established Colorado State University’s College of Business amid the social complexities of the 1960s. For more than 20 years, he shaped the college with his vision that students come first, and business, carried out with integrity and skill, is a force for good that can solve complex problems and change the world, setting the tone for how we do business today – in teaching, in research, and in practice.

Honor Dean Dobler’s legacy and keep the College of Business at the forefront of entrepreneurial education. Your gift allows the college to equip students with the skills and competencies they need to build a fulfilling career and achieve their goals.
