Behind every successful student athlete is a support system of people that contribute to his or her achievement.
This year, the UC Athletics Department and the Athletics Advisory Council chose two supporters from the Lindner College of Business to receive the 2011–2012 Department of Athletics’ Legion of Excellence Student-Athlete Faculty Impact Award.
Erwin Erhardt, an adjunct assistant professor of economics, and Michael Rowland, an advisor of undergraduate business programs, are being acknowledged for supportive relationship with student athletes.
“I congratulate Erwin and Michael for this well-deserved honor. Both exemplify our college’s dedication and commitment to creating meaningful and quality student experiences,” says Lindner College of Business Dean David M. Szymanski.
The Department of Athletics, along with members of the Athletic George Smith Society, will host a pre-game reception for award recipients on February 18 at the UC/Seton Hall men’s basketball game. The awards will be presented on court at 4 p.m. prior to the game.
