Recognizing excellence - QSB launches Faculty Hall of Fame

Issue: 

Two new traditions will launch on May 23, 2009: the inaugural Spring Reunion Luncheon and the induction of the first honorees into the Queen's School of Business Faculty Hall of Fame. The Hall idea originated with David Sculthorpe, BCom'83, Chair of QSB’s Advisory Board, as a way of recognizing outstanding faculty members who havemade a lasting impact through their teaching, research or service.


“2009 marks the 90th anniversary of the launch of Queen's Commerce program – Canada's first undergraduate business degree,” explains Dean David Saunders. “What better way to celebrate our rich history than to recognize the professors who most influenced the thousands of students who have earned their business degree at Queen's?”


An email from Dean Saunders sent on March 11 to the alumni community solicited nominations by April 17. The Selection Committee, comprised of Queen’s officials, alumni, faculty, student and staff representatives,will review all nominations and choose the inaugural honorees based upon criteria defined in the Terms of Reference. The celebration at Spring Reunion announcing the inaugural inductees will be covered in the summer issue of the magazine.
