Concordia University Texas is pleased to host the first ever Ethics in Business & Community (EiBC) Alumni gathering on February 27, from 4 – 6 p.m. to recognize EiBC past award recipients and to announce the 2014 EiBC finalists. Attendees include St. David’s Foundation, K&N Management – Rudy’s BBQ, ABC Home & Commercial Services and many more. This event is free and open to the community, and snacks and drinks will be provided. RSVP to (512) 623-4780 or email@example.com.
RecognizeGood and EiBC will also present a $10,000 scholarship to the Business Scholars Program at Concordia University Texas. The scholarship given will aid with travel trips, local business tours, challenge courses and leadership training. Last year, the scholarship was used for an integrated computer decision making leadership simulation and a Georgetown Challenge Course, which focused on teamwork, leadership and values.
Each year, RecognizeGood presents the EiBC award to individuals, non-profits, small and large businesses that exemplify the highest level of ethical standards and demonstrate a strong commitment of integrity. On May 22, RecognizeGood will announce the award winner at the 12th Annual Ethics in Business & Community Awards at the AT&T Conference Center.
All nominees for the EiBC awards are vetted by CTX undergraduate College of Business students in the Business Scholars Program. Students review and research the initial nominees and narrow the list down to 12 finalists, three in each category (individual, non-profit, small and large business). The students produce an in-depth review of each finalist and present their findings to an independent selection committee of business and community leaders to vote on the actual award recipients. The selection committee is led by Don Christian, Dean of the College of Business at CTX.
“Being a part of this process really helped me understand what I learned in the classroom, but I also learned how to represent the University in a variety of networking opportunities and meetings,” business administration major, Amanda Hurvitz, said. “After doing the research, I decided that I really want to be a part of companies like the ones we choose as finalists, because I’ve learned how important it is for organizations to have high ethical standards and values.”
