William and Rita Fitzgerald Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies

In 1995, a generous gift from William and Rita Fitzgerald created the Fitzgerald Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies in the College of Business Administration. The Institute was established to promote the principles of free enterprise and encourage entrepreneurial spirit and practices both within the University’s curriculum and throughout the business community.

The Fitzgerald Institute focuses on the development of curriculum appropriate for both new ventures and the entrepreneurial development and growth of existing businesses. The Institute provides the needed link between the University and the community of entrepreneurs critical to business development in the future.
