The Paul Purcell Initiative

Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business, with the support of the Purcell family and Baird, has announced the Paul Purcell Initiative, which supports two efforts at the College:

  • The Paul E. Purcell Professor endowed position, which recognizes a Mendoza faculty member who advances the values of servant leadership, teamwork and excellence. In recognition of her dedication to teaching excellence and spirit of service and innovation, Viva Bartkus has been named as the inaugural Paul E. Purcell Associate Professor.
  • The Paul Purcell Frontlines Endowment for Excellence, which extends Purcell’s professional impact by advancing Mendoza’s ability to offer unparalleled experiential learning to every MBA student in perpetuity. The endowment is supported by a cornerstone gift from Baird, its Foundation and select associates.
