UW-Stevens Point receives $10 million donation from Sentinel Insurance

UW-Stevens Point business students Jose Saul Vasquez and Mikkalyn Hafner participated in a networking reception with local organizations as part of the Smiley Professional Events Program in the School of Business and Economics.

The University of Wisconsin-Stevens on Thursday announced a $10 million endowment, the largest in the school’s history, that will help the institution raise the profile of its business school and enroll more students.

Sentry Insurance, a Stevens Point-based commercial insurance company with 4,800 employees, made a gift to the university, which renamed its College of Business and Economics the Sentry College of Business and Economics.

According to UW-Stevens Point, the bulk of the gift — one of the largest ever received by a UW-regional campus — will be used to renovate the Collins Classroom Center. The 1966 building was used for general education classes and is planned for upgrades. It will become a separate building for the School of Business and will be renamed the Sentinel Building.
