Saunders College of Business at RIT Logo

Saunders College of Business is grateful to its esteemed donors. With their help, Saunders College has grown to become a beacon of success, delivering impact at the intersection of business and technology.

Saunders College celebrated the 10th Anniversary of its naming in October 2017, and the completion of the Saunders Challenge. E. Philip Saunders, a distinguished Rochesterian businessman and entrepreneur, recognized the effort and drive of RIT business students and sought to empower them through his donation to the business college.

Igniting a new generation of giving, Mr. Saunders, the college’s namesake, launched his “Saunders Challenge”, inspiring other donors to join in his support of faculty, student scholarships, enhanced facilities and entrepreneurship.

At the forefront of following Mr. Saunders' lead, two distinguished donors, the Sklarsky Family and the Gueldenpfennig Family, have ensured the educational facilities at Saunders College are continually at the cutting edge of business and technology.
