USF St. Petersburg Kate Tiedemann College of Business
Message From the Dean

Dear Colleagues,

In recent past we have been the fortunate recipients of very generous gifts by Kate Tiedemann, Lynn Pippenger and Ellen Cotton. The Kate Tiedemann College of Business (named after our benefactor) will be moving to its new home – Lynn Pippenger Hall – in January. This beautiful contemporary facility will house all the classrooms, faculty and staff offices, and student support services for our graduate and undergraduate programs. Lynn Pippenger Hall will also be the home of some very exciting spaces which includes the Ellen Cotton Atrium, the Wealth Management Center, the Entrepreneurship Center, the Consumer Insight Lab, and Community Engagement areas.

As Dean, I am very excited at the opportunity to have all of our faculty and staff in the same building. We will be well situated to serve our students and ensure their success in the academic programs. Our immediate focus will be in the following areas:

1. Developing innovative and relevant programs
2. Increase experiential learning opportunities for KTCOB students
3. Develop a strong professional development program for KTCOB students

As you know one of the key challenges for our students is the financial commitment to higher education. Many of our students work full-time to support themselves. Through the generous gifts of Kate, Ellen and Lynn, we have started to support many KTCOB student scholarships through endowments. As these endowments grow and mature, we need to continue the momentum and increase student annual scholarships.

YOUR financial support is crucial. So, please consider supporting the KTCOB Faculty and Staff Scholarship Fund. My promise to this campaign is a dollar for dollar match for gifts made to the KTCOB Faculty and Staff Scholarship Fund up to a total of $2,000. Also, Prof. Gary Patterson and I are committed to build this scholarship to $50,000. Any faculty or staff member with cumulative giving to this fund of $1,000 or more will be recognized on a special donor plaque prominently displayed in Lynn Pippenger Hall.

The faculty/ staff campaign is co-chaired by Rebecca Harris and Nikki Stowell. They will be contacting you soon with details of the campaign. I appreciate your continued support of the Kate Tiedemann College of Business students.

Warm Regards,

Sri Sundaram,
Dean, Kate Tiedemann College of Business
