Through the generosity of Daniel W. Erdman
, a new scholarship fund has been established. It is named the Joyce Erdman Scholarship Fund
in memory of Dan’s mother. The fund will support graduate students in Operations and Technology Management, with a preference for women.
Joyce Erdman, who passed away in 1992, was a strong supporter of the University of Wisconsin and served as President of the Board of Regents and President of the Dean’s Advisory Board at the Wisconsin School of Business. The cornerstone of the Erdman Center was laid by Dan’s father, Marshall Erdman, whose original endowment to the Center was made to honor his wife. Dan and his three siblings later augmented the original endowment and have supported the Center and its activities in various ways since its inception in 1994.
