Homecoming

Homecoming 2015: October 7-11, 2015

Weatherhead alumni joined in an event filled weekend to celebrate Homecoming 2015 on October 7-10. The fantastic turnout, stimulating programs and the bestowing of the Outstanding Alumni award made the weekend a huge success! Alumni and friends came back to reconnect with fellow classmates and Weatherhead faculty. Included in programming was a panel discussion on Big Data with industry leaders, and a Women in Leadership series featuring small round table discussions with prominent women leaders, discussing transformational change. Both of these and other events were met with great response and we hope to continue to build upon this successful programming.

Congratulations to the 2015 Weatherhead Alumni Award Recipient!
