“The Canfield Business Honors Program is increasing our global impact,” says Lillian Mills, dean of Texas McCombs. “These students really want to go change the world — in Texas, in the U.S. and globally.”
The Canfields’ world-changing gift supports student scholarships, enhances programming and boosts recruitment efforts to attract a diverse community of learners, scholars and trailblazers to the Forty Acres. By opening doors for future Longhorns and keeping top talent in Texas, the Canfields have generated opportunities for students to chase their passions, create businesses and innovate alongside leading-edge companies.
