Faculty Pioneer Awards

For nearly two decades, the Aspen Institute Faculty Pioneer Awards recognized faculty at the vanguard of teaching about the business and society interface.

In 2016, we recognized innovative business professors teaching (at the MBA level) about the most pressing “grand challenges” faced by our society and environment today: climate change, inequality, global health, financial inclusion, human rights, resource scarcity, economic development and much more.

Faculty Pioneer Award recipients were recognized at Aspen’s Management Education Roundtable in Pocantico Hills, New York on Oct. 26-27. This invite-only gathering brought together approximately twenty-five faculty and deans from leading business programs to discuss how to best tackle our world’s grand challenges within higher education.
