$1.5M Gift From Fishlinger Family Foundation to Fund Entrepreneurship Center, Career Advising

The University of Maryland will receive a $1.5 million gift from the Fishlinger Family Foundation to support the Robert H. Smith School of Business’ Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship and the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences’ Joel and Kim Feller Advising and Career Center. The first $1 million of the donation is designated to help fund the Dingman Center’s programs, operations and other initiatives that help students launch their own startups. The other $500,000 will go to the Feller Center, to endow a Fishlinger director of career planning.

The Center for the Study of Business Ethics, Regulation, & Crime (C-BERC) at the University of Maryland is the first of its kind to formally link Business with Criminology in an effort to scientifically confront, assess, evaluate, and develop best practices in areas related to the center.

Businesses, whether public, private, government or not for profits, are highly susceptible to fraud. Having critical controls in place and making sure they work reduces exposure for the company’s business, employees, vendors, investors and customers. Fraud prevention and early detection are two foundational musts to protect any business from losses, leading to bankruptcy, liability, and harmful business reputation exposure.
