The University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business recently announced its annual list of Office of the Dean Mission Awards, which honor one or more faculty members for a specific research study that contributes to the common good.

The award is in recognition of Mendoza’s mission "to build a premier Catholic business school that fosters academic excellence, professional effectiveness and personal accountability in a context that strives to be faithful to the ideals of community, human development and individual integrity."  A committee made up of the chairs from each of the College’s five academic departments — Accountancy; Finance; IT, Analytics, and Operations; Management & Organization; and Marketing — along with the associate dean for faculty and research, select research papers that advance the mission. Each award provides $1,000 in cash.
