Waggoner’s Partnership Launches Investors with Purpose Program

doug waggoner

A new course in wealth management brings together 16 high-achieving students this fall with global investment professionals for a one-of-a-kind experiential learning experience at the College of Business. Doug Waggoner, ’75 and ’77, envisioned the Investors with Purpose program and pitched the idea to the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, based on taking risks and trying new things during his own successful career in finance and investment management.

Waggoner’s desire to impact the future of his field inspired him to join forces with his alma mater, where he served in various capacities, including as a member of the Department of Finance Advisory Board at the college.
