(11/19/14)

The School of Business Administration observed the 20th anniversary of the naming of the A. Gary Anderson Graduate School of Management with a celebratory dinner on Nov. 13 at the Victoria Club in Riverside to coincide with Homecoming 2014.

20th Anniversary dinner

Among the nearly 200 attendees was UCR Chancellor Kim Wilcox. SoBA Dean Yunzeng Wang also received special commendations from Assemblymembers Jose Medina of the 61st District and Marie Waldron of the 75th District in recognition of the special anniversary. 

The highlight of the evening came with the announcement of a $2.5 million gift by the A. Gary Anderson Family Foundation. The gift will go toward creating three endowed chairs for faculty members and providing scholarships for graduate students from Inland Southern California. 

AGSM was renamed in 1994, thanks to an initial $5 million gift by the A. Gary Anderson Family Foundation. The Graduate School of Administration was established in 1970 by the UC Riverside School of Business Administration. 

The continued support by the A. Gary Anderson Family Foundation will further the UC Riverside School of Business Administration’s mission to develop diverse leaders, propel research-based innovation, and promote the sustainable growth of Inland Southern California within the global economy.
