Alumni & Faculty Hall of Fame

We at The W. A. Franke College of Business greatly value our alumni, friends, and retired faculty who have supported our efforts over the years. In 2003, our National Advisory Board decided to formalize our appreciation by creating the Alumni Hall of Fame to recognize the achievement of our outstanding alumni. A year later, they realized this should also embrace the outstanding faculty who have supported our Mission. The recognition is now called the FCB National Advisory Board's Alumni & Faculty Hall of Fame.

We are very proud of our inductees and invite you to learn about each of them, and to enjoy our photos and videos from previous events. We encourage nominations for the upcoming year, more information can be found HERE.

Each year we host a recognition dinner the Friday of Homecoming Weekend. On an annual basis, current Hall of Fame members join faculty and staff to welcome and honor new inductees.
