Business Fellows Leadership Circle

The Business Fellows Leadership Circle is comprised of twelve members of Business Fellows that were appointed to shape the strategic direction of the community through programming, marketing, prospective student recruitment, and faculty & staff advising. In addition to committee chair responsibilities, each member serves as a mentor for the Business Buddies Peer Mentoring Program, allowing the opportunity to guide a first year student through his or her transition to college and becoming integrated into the university community.
