Business Success Center

For the third time in the last twelve months, the University of South Florida Muma College of Business has received a multimillion dollar donation from an alumnus. Businessman Barron ‘Barry’ Collier III and his wife, Dana, donated $10.85 million to his alma mater, creating the Collier Student Success Center. We explain what that means for the college and its students on University Beat on WUSF TV.
