FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Through a $2 million gift from the Tyson Family Foundation and Tyson Foods Inc., the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas is establishing the Tyson Center for Faith and Spirituality in the Workplace.

Judith A. Neal has been appointed the first director of the proposed Tyson Center for Faith and Spirituality in the Workplace. The $2 million gift was matched from the Walton Family Charitable Support Foundation in the University of Arkansas Campaign for the Twenty-First Century, creating a $4 million endowment for the proposed center. The center will focus on curriculum development; outreach programs to business, churches and civic organizations; and research program support. Neal reports to Don Bland, Walton College senior managing director of outreach.

Walton College Dean Dan Worrell said, “Faith and spirituality are very important, yet underdeveloped dimensions of diversity in the workplace. The Walton College is very grateful to John Tyson for helping us become a top school in this emerging discipline, and we believe that Judith Neal is the right person to lead this effort. There is tremendous interest in this area of inquiry not only in academia but also in the business community.”
