We would like to commend the members of the School of Management Employers’ Forum (SMEF), which recently assumed the responsibility of hosting the entire spring career fair. It brought more then 90 companies to Purdue and was the most successful spring career fair to date.
The Diversity Committee, under the direction of Jamie Toren, continues to work toward creating a global community within Krannert. To achieve this goal, the committee is planning a diversity workshop that will not only help to build a bridge between cultures in the workplace, but also strengthen our understanding and acceptance of the diversity that surrounds us.
The Faculty and Student Awareness Committee will host the spring Krannert Question-and-Answer Session. This town hall-style meeting allows students to directly interact with Krannert’s deans, offering suggestions and voicing concerns. I want to thank Dean Cosier and the associate deans for their ongoing commitment to this event.
The S.T.A.R.S. Committee has been actively pursing events where council members can give back to the West Lafayette and Lafayette communities. One annual event is the Relay for Life, which benefits cancer research. It provides an opportunity to make an impact within the community and also serves as a great team-building event.

The Barbara G. Doster Leadership Forum Committee, under the direction of Andy Butwin, has begun to plan for the February 2007 forum. The student-run event brings together 100 of Krannert’s top students with 20 corporate representatives for a weekend-long leadership forum in Indianapolis.
Celebrating and helping to develop the potential leader within every Krannert undergraduate, the Barbara G. Doster Leadership Forum is a favorite among students as well as corporate participants. Andy has challenged all the members of the committee to continue the legacy and make it a dynamic learning experience for everyone involved.
It is an inspiring time to be a part of the Krannert School of Management. We thank our alumni for their continued support, and we embrace the opportunity to be a part of Krannert’s success.
