A groundbreaking for the College of Business Administration's new Mammel Hall took place Monday, June 2, at the northwest corner of 67th & Pine Streets. The lead gift for the building was made by Carl and Joyce Mammel of Omaha. Their commitment is the largest single philanthropic gift to benefit UNO in the campus' 100-year history. The $38.5 million CBA project includes $31 for construction of the 120,000-square-foot facility. The remaining $7.5 million will be directed to an endowment to enhance CBA programs and benefit students and faculty. At the ceremony, UNO also announced a second significant gift supporting the building project. A commitment by Omahans Ruth and Bill Scott enables UNO to begin work on the project this summer. John Scott, son of Ruth and Bill Scott, said, "Our family would like to recognize the leadership of Carl and Joyce Mammel in this meaningful endeavor. My parents enjoy the opportunity to partner with the Mammels in helping bring this project to fruition. They share in Carl and Joyce's passion for supporting excellence in education and in promoting the economic strength of our community."
