A $10 million gift from the Sentry Insurance Foundation will significantly expand opportunities for University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point business students, with an impact that will affect the entire region.
Sentry, longtime corporate leader in Stevens Point, recognizes a strong university is paramount to developing a skilled workforce and talent pipeline for the future. This new initiative builds on the company’s successful partnership in developing UW-Stevens Point’s data analytics program. Sentry also created the Sentry IT Co-op downtown, employing UW-Stevens Point students.
The gift will help renovate an existing building, Collins Classroom Center, to create a state-of-the-art facility to house the Sentry School of Business and Economics. When renovations are complete, it will be renamed Sentry Hall as a visible signal of the partnership between Sentry and UW-Stevens Point and the commitment to address the talent development needs of the region.
UW-Stevens Point Sentry School of Business and Economics is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Graduates will complete degrees from a program ranked among the top 20 percent in the nation and top 5 percent in the world.
