Richard S. Liu Auditorium dedicated May 5 at UTSA

(May 4, 2005)--President Ricardo Romo will honor UTSA friend and benefactor Richard S. Liu by dedicating the Business Building Auditorium on the 1604 Campus in his name at 10 a.m. Thursday, May 5 in the College of Business (Room 2.01.02), 1604 Campus. The event, followed by a reception, is free and open to the UTSA community and friends.

An international businessman and philanthropist, Liu is chairman of Superior Holdings Limited. He established the Liu's Family Foundation U.S.-China Business Education Initiative in 1998 in the College of Business.

"Richard's vision and generous financial support have literally opened new worlds for our business students, faculty and community partners," said Romo. "Please join us May 5 when we recognize this remarkable UTSA friend."

"I have been thoroughly pleased with the Liu's Family Foundation U.S.-China Business Education Initiative in the UTSA College of Business," said Liu, who also supports programs at the University of California, Berkeley. "I want to help a new generation of business students in the United States and China realize their dreams."

The Liu program features graduate student and faculty exchanges and executive educational opportunities between the College of Business and top universities in China. Liu has given more than $3 million in support of the program.

A native of Taiwan, Liu received his undergraduate degree in business administration from the National Taiwan University. Unable at that time to afford the costs of graduate study abroad, he launched his business career with much of his earliest successes occurring in Texas.
