For the Haas Fund


Jiawen Xiao, Fellowship Recipient

The scholarship came as a blessing to me and consolidated my decision to come to Haas. The year 2020 greatly impacted the work of my parents, who are the main sponsor of my tuition, so the scholarship has given us much faith and hope to continue my MBA journey. Thank you again for your kindness and generosity in paying forward to our community.


Jiawen Xiao, MBA 21

Faculty Retention

Every year, some of our best faculty receive competitive offers to teach at other top schools. In the past ten years, with your support, we have successfully kept 89% of those here at Haas. And, we hired 10 new faculty members this year.

Alumni Engagement

This year, our Alumni Relations team redesigned signature events and programming for virtual engagement, while some chapters found new ways to connect. We also laid the foundation for identity-based alumni affinity groups. In a time of highly unpredictable employment, our network sourced over 250 jobs for new graduates and alumni this spring.
