Trulaske Honors

Each spring, the Trulaske College of Business recognizes influential and successful members of its community with a luncheon held on campus. Unfortunately, the 2020 event was cancelled due to social distancing orders in place in Boone County and throughout Missouri.

Congratulations to this year’s honorees. We applaud your accomplishments and look forward to celebrating with you in person in the future!

Citation of Merit

Annually, up to 10 Trulaske College of Business Citations of Merit are awarded. The recipients are selected by a vote of the entire faculty of the college. In deciding upon those individuals to be placed before the faculty, the Faculty Policy Committee reviews each candidate in relation to accomplishments in his/her career; involvement with the college through board activities, recruitment or other collaborative programs; and financial support of the college.

Recent Alumni Achievement Award

The Recent Alumni Achievement Award recognizes outstanding volunteer support of the Trulaske College of Business as well as the professional accomplishments of alumni who received their degree 15 or fewer years ago. The award is presented annually to a maximum of two alumni. Recent Alumni Achievement Award nominees are screened by the Faculty Policy Committee and approved by the college’s faculty. Selection criteria include active involvement with the college through advisory boards or other collaborative activities; professional accomplishments early in his/her career; and a demonstration of leadership for or inspiration to students and other alumni through participation in university or college events and/or social and community service.
