Rich Tinberg (B.S., ’72) and his wife, Elaine, have committed $1 million to the College of Business to continue the Tinberg Teaching Innovation Grants through 2025 as well as to create the Tinberg Better World Professorship.

The Tinberg Teaching Innovation Grants were created to inspire faculty to design course content to equip students with the values, knowledge, and skills to navigate the changing world; understand how to manage and lead inclusive environments; and address global challenges with sustainable business models and practices.

The Tinberg Business for a Better World Professorship will support College of Business faculty who are exceptional scholars and whose research embodies the philosophy of business for a better world. These faculty are recognized nationally and globally for their contributions to their disciplines, and their work holds substantial promise for positively impacting society.
