Fall Highlights with Dean Prabhudev Konana
I’ve been energized by a summer of planning. We are launching a bold new strategic plan for the Smith School to continue our pursuit of academic excellence and to address the changing marketplace. Our purpose is to generate and disseminate new and impactful knowledge, and to provide a transformational, integrated, interdisciplinary experience that unleashes student creativity to challenge the status quo, builds their ability to think critically and independently, and empowers them to drive a prosperous future for the benefit of all.
Alumni Hall of Fame
The Smith School is celebrating the 25th year of our naming by launching a Hall of Fame to honor alumni and dedicated champions who embody excellence achieved through inspired business education. The Hall of Fame Committee, composed of faculty, alumni and Smith leadership, wants your nominations for our inaugural cohort.
