FCBE Holds Open House
For release: October 1, 2010
The FCBE Open House offered hundreds of current and prospective Fogelman students
the opportunity to meet representatives from FCBE academic departments, master and
doctoral programs, honors program, internship and scholarship programs, and student
clubs. The Alumni Center staff was also available to share insights with future UM alums.
The Open House covered two days, September 21 and 22, which enabled day and evening
students the chance to mingle and explore. Dean Rajiv Grover and Provost Ralph Faudree were on hand to greet students and unveil
the Fogelman Promise Banners. Depicting the signatures of hundreds of students, staff
and faculty, the banners constitute pledges made by those in the FCBE to act in ethical
and professional ways. The banners are hanging in the FCBE atrium. Provost Faudree
also marked a key event in the FCBE’s redesigned honors program by opening ‘Honors
Commons’, a dedicated common room for honors students. The Open House also featured
the launch of the new Professionalism First and Fogelman Fit programs. Click on these

The Open House was sponsored by SunTrust Bank who generously supplied refreshments
for the event, and coordinated by Mary Johnson, Academic Advisor for the FCBE.
