Lawrence Jepson understood the importance of global economics long before many of his peers in the 1970s. A Wall Street businessman, Jepson used to say if a Zurich banker sneezed, someone in the United States caught a cold. Jepson came to the United States as an immigrant from Denmark.
Faculty are the life-blood of our educational mission -- getting students ready for business. They provide the leadership and direction for our future while balancing three significant responsibilities -- teaching, scholarship, and service. Our first three awards recognize faculty whom the leadership team believes perform at the highest levels in each of these distinct areas. They distinguish themselves in their excellence and commitment.
Every April, UNIBusiness celebrates the end of the academic year by recognizing the accomplishments of distinguished faculty, alumni and students at the annual Leadership Celebration. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 UNIBusiness Leadership Celebration will be celebrated virtually though a series of online features, videos and social media posts honoring the recipients.
