Coggin College of Business

Leadership event a success

Coggin College’s 50 Years of Excellence event was a huge success with a panel discussion packed with outstanding business executives. It was one of the UNF events marking the university’s half-century mark honoring the founding of the institution in 1972.

Coggin College of Business Dean Richard Buttimer helmed the lively discussion that tackled such timely challenges as economic mobility and the role businesses play in bringing about economic progress in a market such as Jacksonville.
