Please consider helping out with FAU’s annual The Giving Tree Boca Raton holiday campaign. We are still in need of your help for 17 children and teens. Many of the children have special needs and the teens face unique challenges. Consider pooling resources with your colleagues, family, and friends to collectively cover the full wish lists. Together, we can create a ripple effect of generosity that will brighten the lives of many.
FAU Giving Tree 2023 Wish Lists
  • All items must be NEW.
  • If you adopt a teen, every teenager gets a $75 gift card to a store of their choice as well as a hoodie sweatshirt. Sizes and preferred store provided.
  • If you select a wish list, purchase EVERY item on that list.
  • If you purchase a gift card, PLEASE write the dollar amount on the gift card so the recipient knows how much it is worth.
  • Do NOT wrap gifts.
  • If you select a child from the Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies list, please get TWO outfits on the clothing list (plus shoes, socks, diapers/wipes if requested). Try to get the specific toy item if requested.
  • Put wish list gifts together in a bag with the name and the code of the child/teen/senior so the volunteers can match your gift correctly.
  • Drop off to the Department of Management Programs in the Carl DeSantis Pavilion, DS-201 (second floor behind/above the Sean Stein Pavilion - look for the lighted angel in the window) by this Monday, December 4th.
Thank you!
Jennifer & the Department of Management Programs

We are excited to share the Launch of the NEW Florida Atlantic & International Materials Supply Chain Analytics Case Competition.

International Materials, a leading independent global trader in bulk raw materials, headquartered in Delray Beach, Florida, specializes in serving industries like cement, wallboard, and steel making with efficient and customer-specific delivery of products. This competition focuses on Supply Chain Management (SCM), an integral process involving the acquisition, movement, transformation, and distribution of goods and services, from their origin to the end consumer. It's open to all undergraduate and graduate students, particularly those studying fields like supply chain management, business analytics, operations management, and related areas. The event offers a unique learning experience, with free registration and cash prizes for the winning team, inviting wide participation and fostering practical skills in Supply Chain Management.
