Board Acknowledges $25 Million Gift, Approves Naming UAB’s Collat School of Business

The UAB School of Business will be named for longtime supports Charles and Patsy Collat in recognition of their $25 million in gifts and pledges to the school.

The naming, approved by the University of Alabama System’s Board of Trustees, comes as the university prepares to publicly launch the Campaign for UAB, its most ambitious fundraising campaign to-date, with the Collat donation as the lead gift.
