The center, made possible through generosity of UCM alumnus Donn G. Forbes with a gift to the UCM Foundation, will become the dedicated home of Student Investment Fund, a student investment group. Formed in the fall of 2013, the team of undergraduate and graduate students enrolled for course credit gain realistic experience by performing detailed investment analyses and investing funding allocated by the UCM Foundation. Funds generated through investment generate additional dollars for UCM Foundation scholarships.

Forbes graduated from UCM in 1952 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. After graduation he enlisted and served in the U.S. Coast Guard. His professional career with International Paper Company spanned more than 30 years, during which he worked in sales and marketing. He now lives in Vancouver, Wash.
