Stories of Friends Who Make Eller Greater
Whether you are the parent of a current student, member of the business community, or an alum who wants to give back to the community that helped shape your career, your investment in the Eller College makes business education at the UA even greater.
Follow this space as we tell the stories of the friends who have made Eller greater for future generations of business students:
Karl Eller, ‘52
Rarely has the nature of an academic institution so closely reflected the personal character and professional achievement of its greatest benefactor. Karl Eller’s enterprising spirit, his capacity for innovation, and his drive to distinguish his own life by contributing to the development of his community make him a true namesake.
Norman P. McClelland, ’49, and Francis Helen ’44
Since 1992, the Eller College has been housed in McClelland Hall, named for the McClelland family, which founded Shamrock Foods Corporation. Shamrock chairman Norman P. McClelland and his sister Francis Helen are both alumni of the College.
Joelle Benson, ’95
As an undergraduate MIS student at the Eller College, Joelle Benson put the cutting-edge information systems theories she learned in the classroom into practice through her work with Regents’ Professor Jay Nunamaker and his Center for Management Information (CMI) lab.
