Davis College Investors

​​​​We are grateful for the support and generous donations from the Jacksonville business community and individuals. We appreciate the guidance and input from the Davis family in 2014 . We received two major Davis gifts to fund 2013-2014 projects.

1) Our TEDD program was created to develop a hybrid platform to deliver our flex MBA and executive DBA program taking the best from our in classroom, personalized teaching approach with the best available online pedagogy.

  • The $1,000,000 Davis gift has enabled​ faculty to enhance and enrich the course experiences in and out of class.

2) The executive DBA program was launched in fall 2014 with a Davis gift of $325,000.

  • Additionally Frances Bartlett Kinne established the Kinne Scholar program in 2013 to support excellence in graduate business education with a $20,000 gift. She increased her annual gift in 2014 to $30,000, supporting a total of seven incoming graduate students.
  • During 2014, we grew the Dean's discretionary budget from executive advisory gifts from $11,800 to $41,400. Many executive advisory board members also donated of their time talent and treasure during 2014.
