Service Hall of Fame

The College of Business honored the first inductees into its Service Hall of Fame in 2008-2009. Each year the dean and his staff chooses one or more individuals for this distinction based on their long-standing dedication to the College and its mission. Service Hall of Fame inductees are listed on a permanent display in the College of Business and are recognized during Hall of Fame Day during Business Week each spring.

Selection and Recognition

A committee assembled by the dean chooses the honorees who are inducted into the College of Business Hall of Fame each spring during Business Week. While on campus these individuals share their expertise with students and faculty through presentations and small group activities. Hall of Fame awards are presented at a formal luncheon ceremony and honorees are also recognized on a permanent display near the Dean's Office in the College of Business.
