By Ashley Rains

Spring Hill College received a $2 million gift from Kathryn “Murph” and John J. ’63 Burke to fund a new business center – the John J. Burke Jr. Center for the Study and Advancement of Free Enterprise. The Burke Center will be independently housed in the Business Division, offering courses of study in understanding the free enterprise system, entrepreneurship and American business principles for undergraduate students in all of the college’s academic majors.

The center’s goal is to educate students on the concepts of free enterprise and the free market system, ultimately empowering them to use their Jesuit education to contribute to a stronger U.S. economy and job growth as well as to improve the lives of others.
