School of Business announces new building name

The KU School of Business is excited to announce the name of its new building as Capitol Federal Hall.

Capitol Federal Foundation’s $20 million lead gift is the largest gift ever committed to the School of Business and the largest single gift ever given by the foundation. The donation is also one of the largest gifts contributed to Far Above: The Campaign for Kansas.

Capitol Federal Foundation was established to benefit the communities in which Capitol Federal operates. The foundation’s previous gifts for the School of Business include establishing the Capitol Federal Distinguished Professorship in Financial Markets. It has also supported The University of Kansas Cancer Center, scholarships for student athletes, the Lied Center of Kansas and Spencer Museum of Art.

When completed in 2016, the building will offer students and faculty top-notch resources to be competitive not only nationally, but globally.
