About the First Annual MBA Student Community Service Award

Who can be nominated?

Current graduate business students, and alumni who graduated in December 2009 or later.

Do you know of someone, yourself included, who deserves recognition—and a $1,000 award—for their community service achievements?

There are no restrictions on the form that such service takes or its scope, though we encourage nominations for efforts that benefit low-to-middle income, ethnically diverse, or otherwise under-served communities in the greater Bay Area.

Who can nominate candidates?

Current CoB graduate business students, alumni who graduated in December 2009 or later, faculty, staff or bay area community organizations can nominate candidates online now until Thurs., Oct. 21, at

Nominating someone is easy

All we need is the nominee’s name and a brief description of their efforts, so that we can follow up. You can choose to remain completely anonymous.

Who will choose the finalists?

A team of faculty from the CoB’s sustainable business program, in consultation with the nominees and faculty, students, staff and members of bay area communities and organizations who are familiar with the nominees and their efforts.

Who will select the winner?

Current CoB MBA students will vote for one of the finalists, whose service to the community will be profiled online when voting takes place from Mon., Oct. 25 through Fri., Oct. 29.

When will the award be announced?

The MBA Student Community Service Award will be presented at the culmination of Business Ethics Week at 5 p.m. on Wed., Nov. 3, at the SFSU Downtown Campus.

Students, faculty, and members of the local business community are invited to hear guest speaker Leo Sosa, from One Economy Corporation, speak on the topic of Technology-led Community Development Efforts in Under-served Communities.
