$10 million gift endows School of Hotel Administration deanship
Bradley H. Stone '77, president and partner in Gaming Asset Management, LLC, has committed a $10 million gift to endow and name the deanship of the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration (SHA).
"Brad Stone is the ideal person for whom the deanship could be named. I could not be prouder than to associate my position with Brad's name, as will all future deans. Brad is a committed alumnus with an inspiring career in the hospitality industry, and his name will honor the School of Hotel Administration and the position of dean," said Michael D. Johnson, dean and E. M. Statler Professor.
Commenting on the gift, President David Skorton said, "From my perspective, endowments to name our senior leadership posts are among the most important gifts any university can receive. These investments allow us to attract the very best leaders to guide the future of our institution, and they provide critical funds for deans to address foremost priorities. In the School of Hotel Administration, we have a school of global reach and impact, one of the most sophisticated service-oriented business programs in the world. Knowing we have the resources to recruit individuals who are singularly qualified to shape the school’s teaching and research enterprise will be of enormous benefit to me, to my successor Elizabeth Garrett, and to future presidents of Cornell."
