Ross Wins Net Impact Chapter-of-the-Year Honors
MBA student club supports the development of business skills to create a positive impact.
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 2006 Chapter-of-the-Year honors to the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan.
The Ross chapter was selected from more than 130 chapters worldwide, including those from the world's top MBA programs, for its commitment to social and environmental responsibility in campuswide events, curriculum change and professional development.
The Ross club received particular commendation for its large and dedicated membership, events held during Net Impact Week in October and throughout the year, and its members' influence in the effort to "green" the new building construction at the Ross School.
The awards were presented as the culminating event of the three-day Net Impact National Conference in Chicago in front of a crowd of 1,200 attendees—including 60 members of the Ross Net Impact chapter, the largest contingent from a visiting school.
Other honors went to Pepperdine University as the Best "Rookie" Chapter, University of California-Davis as the Best Small Chapter and Yale University School of Management as the runner-up for Chapter of the Year.
