In 1996, William Rucks IV and Catherine Rucks made a generous investment in the E. J. Ourso College of Business’ management department. The department was renamed the William W. & Catherine M. Rucks Department of Management shortly thereafter in their honor.
The Rucks' contributions have aided in the Rucks Department of Management being recognized for its outstanding research-driven faculty, student-affiliated organizations, and outstanding alumni.
