Ross Net Impact is Ranked No. 1 for Second Straight Year

11/20/2007 --

Ross student club dedicated to serving the social and environmental good wins worldwide Chapter-of-the-Year honors.

ANN ARBOR, Mich.—Net Impact, an international organization of more than 10,000 students and professionals committed to serving the social and environmental good through business, has awarded its 2007 Chapter-of-the-Year honors to the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan¿the second straight year that the Ross School has won.

The Ross chapter was selected from more than 150 worldwide, including those from the world's top MBA programs, for its "continued growth, its high level of activity and engagement, its influence on the Ross community and its efforts to assist the development of other Net Impact chapters."

"This honor is a testament to the hard work of our dedicated Ross students, and it reflects the Ross community's strong belief that these issues are central to a well-rounded and forward-looking business education," said Vanessa Frey, co-president of Ross Net Impact.

The awards were presented as the culminating event of the three-day Net Impact National Conference at Vanderbilt University in Nashville in front of a crowd of 1,700 attendees—including more than 60 members of the Ross Net Impact chapter, one of the two largest contingents from a visiting school.
