TROY - Troy University's Sorrell College of Business invites current students and prospective students to participate in GEEKS Week, an initiative of the college that is a part of a new business school accreditation process.
The College is seeking accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, an accreditation held by less than 5 percent of the business programs in the world.
"The goal of the GEEKS campaign is to make our students aware of the overarching strategic initiatives of the college," said Dr. Judson C. Edwards, Dean of the College of Business. "Our faculty and staff work every day to instill these important traits represented by the GEEKS slogan into our students."
GEEKS, Edwards explained, stands for globally aware, engaged with the business community, ethical decision makers, knowledgeable to compete, and successful. The GEEKS slogan is the standard of strategic planning that the students are held to in the Sorrell College of Business.
"In the end, it is my hope that our collective efforts in meaningful teaching, engaging, caring and sharing will produce graduates with strong foundations for successful careers and rewarding lives," Edwards said.
Going throughout this week, GEEKS Week will culminate with GEEK Fest on April 9. GEEK Fest will run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, featuring refreshments and free entertainment from "The Park Band" on the Bibbs Grave quad.
