LOGAN — Utah State University's business school is moving forward with the creation of the Jeffrey D. Clark Center for Entrepreneurship after receiving a $6 million endowment from Jeffrey and Bonnie Clark, school officials announced Wednesday.

The endowment will be used to fund the center's headquarters in the Logan campus' Huntsman Hall, which is scheduled to complete construction and open in 2015. Funds from the endowment will also support programs in the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business that foster entrepreneurial success among USU students.

“This gift from Jeff and Bonnie and their active involvement with our entrepreneurship programs will move us ahead significantly,” Douglas D. Anderson, dean of the Jon M. Huntsman school of business, said in a prepared statement. “Now we can provide ever-more concrete, effective assistance to budding entrepreneurs who have great ideas they want to develop.”
