Alumni Enhance the Student Experience To advance the School, a vibrant community of alumni, parents, partners and friends share their time, talent and treasure. Alumni come back to teach in the classrooms and host recruiting events across the globe. Corporate Sponsors of Darden host student events and partner with faculty members to write case studies. Donors create professorships and scholarships, support faculty research and case development, and advance the School’s technological capabilities and infrastructure. Volunteers step forward in countless ways to ensure that the School remains at the forefront of business education. Darden recently celebrated the highest annual level of philanthropic giving this century, with alumni, students, faculty, corporate donors and the School’s five leadership boards participating at historically high levels. Never has there been a greater need for Darden’s mission to improve the world by developing responsible leaders and advancing knowledge. And there is an entire community of people and organizations working together to ensure that this mission is met.
