Ivory Homes donates $75,000 to women in business

Cedar City—Ivory Homes, Utah’s number one homebuilder, recently announced a $75,000 gift to Southern Utah University in support of the Ivory Women Student Success Initiative. The initiative provides scholarships to 10 business students to complete a Women Business Leadership Certificate.

“I am thrilled at the opportunity the Ivory Women Student Success Initiative will provide to our students,” said Mary Pearson, dean of the SUU Dixie L. Leavitt School of Business. “This program will further their personal and professional development and allow student participants to see their leadership potential. Great thanks to Clark and Christine Ivory for their generous support of this initiative.”

The Ivory Women Student Success Initiative is a new program that provides female business students with more academic and field experience. 10 students will be selected as “Ivory Scholars,” and along with receiving a half-tuition scholarship and a $1,000 stipend per semester, students will take six credits of women leadership classes, attend conferences and events centered around women in business, participate in the Ivory Hack-a-House competition, and work closely with SUU’s Women in Business club.

“We remember the teacher who saw our potential and made a significant difference in our lives,” said Dr. Paige Gardiner, faculty director of Ivory Women Student Success Initiative. “This program provides SUU faculty with the resources we need to reach out to more students and give them the individualized mentoring, care, and encouragement they need to succeed. We are indebted to Clark and Christine Ivory. Thank you for helping us change the female narrative for women in our state.”

The Clark and Christine Ivory Foundation educates, builds, and supports female students in rural Utah for roles as future business leaders. By developing female business leaders at SUU, the Ivory Foundation’s goal is to sustain communities and improve the equitable role of women in southern Utah.

SUU’s Dixie L. Leavitt School of Business offers 13 business programs to help students achieve their highest potential through top-tier classes taught by professors with real-world experience. Learn more about the School of Business.
