DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — Loras College in Dubuque has received a $1 million donation for its business education program.
The private college announced Andrew and Mary Pat Studdert had contributed the $1 million to fund the Andrew P. Studdert Endowed Chair in Business Ethics and Crisis Leadership.
Roman Ciapalo, a Loras philosophy professor, will be the initial endowed chair holder, beginning with the 2014-2015 academic year. The chair will teach within the masters of business administration program and will incorporate business ethics and crisis leadership principles throughout the business and liberal arts curriculum.
The contribution also will fund an executive in residence program and at least one annual public lecture.
The contribution is part of a $75 million fundraising campaign at Loras, a Catholic college with about 1,600 students.
