Why I Gave.

Dave Frayer, Assistant Dean for Executive Education & Professional Development

“As an alumnus and assistant dean, I have seen first-hand the inspiration and impact a world-class business education can provide. Our faculty have been developing business leaders for years in facilities that haven’t matched the quality of instruction. I wanted to help create a transformational learning environment worthy of a top-of-mind business school and to support our students, the next generation of business leaders. 

I joined the building committee to share what we’ve learned from the design, construction, and operation of the Henry Center for Executive Development—to help ensure that the details of the Pavilion’s learning environment are considered, enriched, and transformational.”

Frayer received his bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees from the Broad College, and has served on the college’s faculty since 1995.
