More than 28,000 donors raised a record $1.17 billion in support of Chicago Booth students, faculty, and critical initiatives as a part of the University of Chicago Campaign: Inquiry and Impact.
Thanks to your generosity, the school is positioned to take remarkable strides into the future and expand our impact.
Chicago Booth’s mission has not changed in the last 120 years: we produce knowledge that has enduring influence, and we educate current and future leaders. What has changed is the innovative new ways we are able to accomplish this. Your philanthropy fosters groundbreaking discoveries, an education that is distinct and transformative, and an impact that can be seen in Chicago, across the nation, and around the world. By supporting the University of Chicago Campaign: Impact and Inquiry, you have helped Booth in these critical ways.
- You created new junior faculty fellowships to recruit the best young scholars and give them the resources to quickly launch their research agendas. You established six new professorships. And you furthered groundbreaking research in both traditional and emerging fields. Our greatest asset is our unparalleled faculty, and your generosity has ensured they have the resources necessary to ask and explore fundamental questions.
- You invested in our future with the launch of the Center for Applied Artificial Intelligence, the endowment of the Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation, the expansion of the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and the creation of the first experiential behavioral science laboratory in the Loop. Building upon our history of combining research with hands-on learning, your support advances the school’s entrepreneurial culture, nurturing innovative approaches to society’s most critical challenges.
- You contributed nearly $125 million in scholarships, making Chicago Booth accessible to students with the greatest potential for impact. Because of you, new scholarship programs to support veterans and rising stars from the social sector are already having a tangible impact on students, and the newly launched Boundless Scholarship Initiative will guarantee that the most promising leaders will always have a place at Chicago Booth.
- You built The Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Academic Complex | The University of Chicago Francis and Rose Yuen Campus in Hong Kong, an architectural achievement affirming Booth’s prominence in Asia. Combined with your investment in our new London campus, you have ensured strong global visibility for the school, uniting our international education and research initiatives and furthering our commitment to having Booth faculty teach across the world.
Our future is strong because of the visionary support of donors like you. Your investment ensures that Chicago Booth will continue to foster innovative research, educate the brightest leaders in business, and make a difference in lives around the world.
