Sally Blount-Lyon the 10th Dean of the Undergraduate College and Vice Dean of the Leonard N. Stern School of Business at New York University will be our keynote speaker on the topic:

From Millennial to Professional: Today’s College Student and Beyond

As the children of the new millennium, college students today have witnessed some of the most dramatic changes both within the walls of their universities and in the world. Globalization, increased access to education and daily innovations in the realm of technology have changed the face of the modern classroom. Because of this, university leaders and faculty must modify established methods to overcome these new challenges. This will be a discussion of how today’s universities are preparing students to become socially engaged and responsible leaders in our global society.

Deans Night is an opportunity for our Beta Gamma Sigma Alumni community to honor the many exceptional students who are inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma at the local area colleges.

Traditionally, Beta Gamma Sigma bestows Medallion and Scholarship Awards to many outstanding new inductees selected for additional honors by their Deans and faculty advisors.
