THE VOICE OF BUSINESS STUDENTS
We are a group of undergraduate College of Business (COB) student leaders who serve as the voice of our peers. Our purpose is to empower COB students to have a say in determining their academic, social, and professional opportunities in the College of Business.
WHAT WE DO
We organize events such as Business Day, Donuts with the Dean, and Integrity Forum where students can network with business leaders.
Every year, we ask students what improvements they want in the college and create or advocate for change.
We organize the annual CANS Around the Oval COB Student Organization Competition and volunteer with local causes, such as Special Olympics.
We put students first, taking the time to thoroughly understand their needs and goals.
We collaborate with students to ensure they have the voice, information, and guidance needed to determine their experiences and opportunities.
We strive to create and nurture inclusive environments that equally value and affirm all members of the College of Business community, including their various identities, skills, ideas, talents, abilities, and contributions.
We work with students and faculty to generate ideas and make continuous improvements in the college.
We stand for what is just and right, and hold ourselves and the College of Business Community accountable to a high level of ethical standards.
We are responsible, individually and collectively, to give our time, talents, and resources to support each other and the improvement of the College of Business and Fort Collins Community.
