Challenge for Excellence Chair in Supply Chain Management

College of Business

Established June 1999

This chair was created through a gift from the United Parcel Service (UPS) Foundation, which was matched by the state's Research Challenge Trust Fund. Its purpose is to support U of L's research initiatives in the area of logistics and distribution. The chair holder works closely with academic and industry partners to develop and nurture ongoing links with the local logistics community. The chair also provides leadership for supply chain management research projects.

The UPS Foundation is committed to funding programs in the areas of human welfare, education and volunteerism.
