USI announces campaign, renames school of business

Posted: Updated:

The University of Southern Indiana announced a new $50-million fundraising campaign and the renaming of it's business school.

University officials made the big announcement Thursday night.

The School of Business will now be called the Romain College of Business after a $5-million donation from Ron Romain.

Romain told the crowd they are already $26-million toward their goal.

"The campaign is focused on scholarship endowments, completion of the teaching theatre, broadening student experience such as travel abroad, internships and expanding opportunities," says Romain.

The announcement came just before a presentation by billionaire oil tycoon, T. Boone Pickens.

Pickens was there courtesy of the USI Foundation and Romain College of Business.
