University of Dallas unveils plans for building – who made it possible?

Yesterday it was reported in DallasNews.com that plans for a new business building at the University of Dallas were unveiled.  The Chief architect, Ron Stelmarski spoke about the building at the unveiling and shared his plans to build it so as to provide panoramic views from many of its windows.

Who made it possible?

The building is to be named the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business in honor of the couple whose $12 million donation made the whole project possible. The Guptas both attended the University of Dallas after having applied as a result of viewing a recruitment poster whilst they were still living in India.

Satish Gupta explains their generosity, saying that their alma mater “holds a special place in [their] hearts.” This is unsurprising considering the couple both have several strong connections to constituents from their former school. Below, an image from a Prospect Visual relationship report reveals some of Yasmin Gupta’s connections to the University of Dallas – connections which help her maintain her connection to the school long after graduating.
