Dean's Business Forum

The Dean's Business Forum Board is made up of alumni and friends committed to enhancing the visibility of Gonzaga University's School of Business Administration in the community. The Board promotes the business school’s outreach throughout Spokane and the Inland Northwest, by serving as a conduit to engage the business school in the community for events, lecturers and guest lecturing in the classroom.  Members of this board, also advisory in nature, provide invaluable educational support for students of the school.  They are a subset of our community partners dedicated to volunteering their time to network and advise the students.  They play a role in experiential learning in the classrooms, providing feedback for the students as they develop their soft skills in the business world.  If you are interested in being involved, please send an email to AJ Hawk at hawka2@gonzaga.edu
