The College of Business and Colorado State University recently lost one of our "Founding
Fathers," Bob Everitt. The Everitts developed the Center for Advanced
Technology in partnership with the CSU Research Foundation and endowed the
Everitt Real Estate Center, which is housed at the CSU College of Business.
They also have been strong supporters of CSU Athletics.
The Everitts' philanthropic, community, and business contributions to
Fort Collins and CSU are too numerous to list. They include an early history of
partnering with Dr. Don Dobler, the first dean of the CSU College of Business,
to help raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for program development and
scholarships. They also include starting the College of Business student
managed investment fund, named the Summit fund, to give students real-world
investing experience. "You give because you love something," said Bob
in a recent presentation to the community.
