The Lubbock Christian University School of Business announced Sept. 28 that it will be moving to a new campus facility named after Dr. Christa Dobbs, long-time LCU business faculty member and Lubbock resident.
The new Christa Dobbs Center for Business will provide approximately 21,000 square feet of beautiful and functional space for business students, faculty, and guests. The name for this facility was requested by an anonymous donor who generously gave more than two million dollars.
LCU also announced a major initiative to raise $15 million to support and advance the School of Business, which will fund the renovated facility. In the silent phase of the campaign, LCU has raised more than eight million dollars in gifts and pledges to support a significant increase in student scholarships, funding for the newly-formed Center for Faith and Business, faculty development, and expanded learning opportunities and experiences for students.
Several other donors who have contributed during the silent phase of the campaign were recognized at the press conference, including alumni Terry (’81) and Cherie (’79) Creech who have made a commitment of more than one million dollars to the campaign. Terry Creech serves as vice chair of the LCU Board of Trustees.
LCU President Tim Perrin said, “As we enter into this phase of our School of Business campaign, we look forward to telling the story of all the good things that are happening here—our outstanding faculty, the great difference our alums are making, the enhancements of our facilities and programs—and we want to share about our ambitious plans for the future.”
Perrin continued, “This is a critical moment for LCU and the School of Business as we seek to ensure that we provide future students the resources and the opportunities they need to become Christ-centered leaders in their communities.”
