Keith Mason (BBA ’82, JD ’85), a Terry College of Business alum and former political advocate, generously pledged $200,000 to support the Institute for Leadership Advancement (ILA). Mason hopes this contribution will encourage students to take an interest in public leadership and service, an expectation that perfectly aligns with one of ILA’s core values, stewardship. Mason’s contribution will fund speakers who are business leaders that have worked in government or played active public roles in their communities. The speaker series funded by Mason will be open to all University students and serve as another opportunity for students to learn about the importance of giving back.
