Hall of Fame

Each year our Hall of Fame will honor a select few who have greatly inspired many. We’ll recognize those who have sustained an unwavering commitment to our mission. And we’ll bring tribute to the leaders among us who have achieved significant encouragement and impact within our network of minority business doctoral students and faculty.

The PhD Project Hall of Fame nominations will be accepted through May 31st.
