The Robert O. Anderson Schools of Management at the University of New Mexico seeks nominations for outstanding alumni to be inducted into the Anderson Hall of Fame.

Now in its 16th year, the Anderson Hall of Fame honors alumni whose distinguished careers serve as a model to the next generation of business leaders. More than 14,000 students have graduated from what is today the Anderson Schools of Management and 45 of those graduates have been selected for induction into the Hall of Fame.

Every year we honor a select group of alumni whose commitment to continuing education and community service are matched by their commitment to professional success. The criteria is as follows:

Professional Success: status in organization, level of responsibility, entrepreneurial success (if applicable), demonstrated impact on organizational growth, success resulting from professional activities.

Contribution to the Community: public service, involvement and leadership in community activities, involvement and leadership in professional organizations.

Involvement/Support for Continuing Education: (including ASM/UNM)
1. Ongoing personal and professional development and advanced degrees.
2. Participation/support and commitment to life long learning opportunities for others.

Outstanding alumni who have distinguished themselves in their professions and have made significant contributions to their communities may be nominated. Those selected will be honored at a special recognition dinner later this spring. For the second year the Schools will also be recognizing three outstanding young alumni. These are alumni who have distinguished themselves in the short time since graduating from The Anderson Schools and are the kind of individuals who may be future Hall of Fame inductees.

“For thirty-four years Anderson has been dedicated to excellence in professional management education, said Dean Chuck Crespy. “With the Hall of Fame we celebrate/honor those individuals who have dedicated their life’s work to making a difference in the firms in which they work; the communities in which they live; and the profession in which they have excelled.”

The deadline for receiving nominations for both the Hall of Fame and the Young Alumni award is Friday, January 28. To nominate an outstanding Anderson alum, simply send their name, title, affiliation and address to: The Anderson Schools of Management Development Office, 1 University of New Mexico, MSC05 3090, Albuquerque, NM 87131.
