Professionalism Recognition Program

The Professionalism Recognition Program (PRP) is a unique opportunity for Business and Hotel & Restaurant Management (HRM) majors to distinguish themselves by developing and demonstrating professional qualities in the classroom and through extracurricular activities.

Students that complete the required amount of extracurricular activities and accumulate the minimum number of professionalism ratings from The W. A. Franke College of Business (FCB) faculty and staff may earn one of three rankings and will be recognized with a letter from the dean in accordance with the level of the rank earned.
