After a $3 million gift, a Birmingham executive will soon see his company's legacy preserved on campus at the University of Alabama.
C.T. Fitzpatrick, founder of Vulcan Value Partners, will join university officials Friday in Tuscaloosa to open the Vulcan Value Partners Research Library and Trading Room inside Bidgood Hall in the Culverhouse College of Commerce. Fitzpatrick, a Culverhouse alumnus, also facilitated the creation of an endowed chair in value investing through his contributions.
“This is an opportunity for the University to create something special that isn’t found elsewhere,” said John Heins, Fitzpatrick Professor of Value Investing and the director of the value-investing program. “The Vulcan Value Partners Library creates a first-class environment for students to collaborate on first-class work.”
