The Dean’s National Advisory Board offers alumni and friends opportunities to be actively engaged in the mission and purpose of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business.
Just in the past year, board members Tim Barney, Jeff Clark, Boyd Craig, Scott Davis, Blake Dursteler, Lynnette Hansen and Brady Murray returned to campus to speak with students. David Stowell taught a seminar on corporate finance, and Roger McOmber was the commencement speaker for the MBA graduation. Gary Anderson spends many hours with students studying entrepreneurship, and for the last three years, Messrs. Barney, Davis and Dursteler have accompanied students during the summer Study Abroad trip to Latin America. There they spend a couple of weeks working directly with the students who are assisting entrepreneurs in developing countries. Many others have opened their networks to enable site visits for the study abroad program.
During the 2009-2010 academic year, the Huntsman School of Business awarded $891,000 in scholarships from privately donated money to students. This figure is more than a four-fold increase over the past five years. Board members are critical to this tremendous increase.
“They serve as our greatest ambassadors, by promoting the school to their networks and by giving their time and resources to expand opportunities for our students,” said Dean Douglas D. Anderson.
