Leadership Circle

The Business Fellows Leadership Circle is comprised of 12 Business Fellows members appointed to shape the strategic direction of the community through leadership, 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, guiding first-year students through their transition to college and helping them become integrated into the university community.
