Founded in 1919 as a department of commerce, UNC’s business school was renamed in 1991 after a family with deep roots in Chapel Hill. The family’s fortune began with Henry Flagler, who partnered with John D. Rockefeller to found Standard Oil. Flagler and his wife Mary Lily Kenan died before the business school opened, but their trust and decedents have been supporting the school since its founding. The Kenan Institute is a research and consulting organization on campus that links students and faculty with businesses around the world.
