Barbara Jordan and George Mitchell Leadership Awards

            

The McCombs School of Business has a long history of developing student leaders who excel both inside and outside the classroom. From leadership positions in student organizations to volunteer work with non-profits, the areas of student involvement are wide-ranging and inspiring. At McCombs, we celebrate this diversity in leadership and want to reward students that have shown exemplary leadership within McCombs. Each year, the Undergraduate Business Council and the Undergraduate Programs Office recognize outstanding student leaders and organizations with the George Mitchell Student Leadership Award, the Barbara Jordan Senior Legacy Award, and the McCombs Student Organizations’ Most Improved and Most Outstanding Awards.
Barbara Jordan Senior Legacy Award

During their final spring semester, graduating seniors are eligible
to apply for the Barbara Jordan Senior Legacy Award. This award
recognizes seniors for the impact they have had on McCombs in the form of student leadership, mentorship, and in the pursuit of a unique passion or goal.  A committee of the students’ peers evaluates all applications. An optional nomination process gives faculty and students the opportunity to recommend candidates they feel best represent the spirit of the award. Recipients are invited to a brunch with the deans of McCombs, have their achievements publicized throughout McCombs, have their name on a plaque inside the school, and receive their official honors at the University Honors Convocation.  

George Mitchell Student Leadership Award
Every year, two outstanding student leaders each from the freshman, sophomore, and junior classes in McCombs are awarded the George Mitchell Student Leadership Award. This award recognizes its winners for their ability to inspire leadership in themselves and others and is given out by a committee of the students’ peers. Recipients are invited to a brunch with the deans of McCombs, have their achievements publicized throughout McCombs, have their name on a plaque inside the school, and receive their official honors at the University Honors Convocation. 

The Barbara Jordan and George Mitchell Award recipients are selected each year by a student committee from the Undergraduate Business Council and is managed by the UBC President.
