Covey, author of the best-selling "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People," was appointed as the first presidential chair in leadership at USU's Jon M. Huntsman School of Business in 2010.
Covey, who was a professor under the appointment, donated his salary back to the school to go toward establishing a Stephen R. Covey Center for Leadership.
Executive Dean Kenneth Snyder of the business school says it'll take donations of at least $10 million to launch the center, and the facility would serve as "a legacy to the life and work" of Covey.
Covey died July 16 at age 79.
