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 showed 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.
All McCombs Affiliated Student Organizations are eligible to apply for the student-given Most Improved and Most Outstanding Awards. Members within each organization have the opportunity of working on the application together and submitting personal testimony as to their organization’s purpose, processes, and successes. Winning organizations will be tangibly honored and publicized. A committee of the students’ peers evaluates all applications.
The McCombs Organization Award recipients are selected each year by a student committee from the Undergraduate Business Council and is managed by the UBC President.
