Events : CB Honors Banquet

The College of Business Annual Honors Banquet is the highlight of the year! During the program we honor student scholarship recipients, outstanding students in each discipline, and interns-of-the-year. In addition, four faculty are recognized with the Advisory Board Faculty Excellence Award in Teaching, in Advising, in Professional Service, and in Research. We also recognize a community college professor for the "Advancing the Dream" award.

Each year's program includes a keynote address from a highly-respected member of the northwest business or academic community. The venue rotates between east and west-side locations.
