If you would like to make a gift to a specific Barney School of Business fund review the list below. Each fund has a description of how your generosity will be used to help our students and faculty.
Dean's Discretionary Fund
During the year unique needs are identified that call for support for the development of our students, faculty and staff. This fund is dedicated as seed money support for development of new initiatives. While these are never known in advance, they are often worthy of meritorious awards and eventually many of these are converted to formal programs in the school.
Dean's Honor Society -Beta Gamma Sigma
Beta Gamma Sigma recognizes the outstanding academic achievement of our finest business student scholars. To join this AACSB International sponsored society requires the students be in the top 7% of the junior class, top 10% of the senior class, or top 20% of graduate students. Each year we strive to increase the number of students who join BGS. Support for this fund will help us to more appropriately recognize the achievement and academic excellence of our students, and promote activities that will engage BGS graduates in our local, regional, and international community.
Accounting Honor Society –Beta Alpha Psi
BETA ALPHA PSI is the honorary organization for Financial Information students and professionals. The primary objective of Beta Alpha Psi is to encourage and give recognition to scholastic and professional excellence in the business information field. This includes promoting the study and practice of accounting, finance and information systems; providing opportunities for self-development, service and association among members and practicing professionals, and encouraging a sense of ethical, social, and public responsibility. Membership is open to all students majoring in accounting and finance who maintain an overall 3.0 GPA and in their major.
Faculty Excellence Fund
To fulfill the Barney mission outstanding teaching, professional development and services all need to be recognized and supported. Gifts to this fund make it possible for us to support and recognize those efforts.
Alumni Hall of Fame Scholarship Fund
Each year one or more of our distinguished alumni are inducted into the Barney School Alumni Hall of Fame. To honor these Inductees, we are endowing a fund to provide deserving current students with scholarships in the week of the induction.
Barney School Anchor Fund
The Anchor Fund raises unrestricted money annually to support the educational opportunities provided at the University of Hartford. This support comes from the university's alumni, parents, faculty, staff, friends, corporations and foundations. All of these people and organizations believe in the opportunities a good education can provide and make their own contributions to back up those beliefs. A strong Anchor Fund increases the value of the education current students receive, and the value of a degree from the university.
