About Terry J. Lundgren
What might have been something ordinary – the inviting of a successful alum to return to his alma mater – turned out to be a moment of something extraordinary – one that has taken Terry J. Lundgren, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Macy's Inc, and the UA’s Retail Center on a transforming journey. In 2005, faculty in the John and Doris Norton School of Family and Consumer Sciences chose to honor this retailing executive by naming their top-flight retailing center the Terry J. Lundgren Center for Retailing. Terry, an UA alumnus, came to campus in 1995 to speak to the students, with an inspiring presentation, “From Campus to CEO”, which drew hundreds of students. Since then, Terry and Macy’s Inc. (formally Federated) have been outstanding partners; Terry has personally established scholarships, many students have benefited from his generosity, and Macy’s supported the creation of a career service center in the new Student Union.
