Your support gives our faculty, staff, and students the ability to achieve excellence. It takes all of us joining in and working together to maximize student success and the strength in our department.

Department of Information Systems and Operations Management

This fund helps with all of our programs in the department. Your contributions can fund scholarships, provide faculty and staff the tools they need to deliver the best possible education to the students, and ultimately give students the support and services they need to succeed. 

Kent C. “Oz” Nelson Logistics and Supply Chain Management Center for Excellence 

This fund supports real-world projects with businesses and community partners giving students the experience to work in the field during their undergraduate academic term. The fund also provides networking and professional development opportunities for not only our students but for alumni, partners, faculty, and staff. Overall, gifts will support our center, aid students in covering their travel expenses and supplies while participating in case competitions, and supplement the costs associated with guest speakers, scholarships, and Annual Senior Awards.
