2024 UNC Sustainability Awards Gala and Graduation Celebration

Please join us for the 2024 UNC Sustainability Awards Gala and Graduation Celebration on Thursday evening, April 25 at the Kenan Center. The Awards Gala precedes Alumni Weekend 2024, so we hope you can be with us to celebrate sustainability in North Carolina as well as our amazing 2024 MBA Sustainable Enterprise graduates.

This year’s Awards Gala will begin with a reception in the Kenan Center Lounge, followed by the dinner and awards ceremony in the Kenan Center Dining Room featuring renowned chef Jacob Boehm of Snap Pea. If you’ve never had to opportunity to enjoy Snap Pea’s offerings, this is your chance! Their pop-up dinners routinely sell out and start at $125 per person (without alcohol). Snap Pea creates each menu around the best local ingredients from local farms and producers in season and pays a living wage to its team.

About the UNC Sustainability Awards

The UNC Sustainability Awards recognize leadership and best practice for three winners: An established and entrepreneurial North Carolina business that shows innovation, initiative and impact in sustainability, as well as a Kenan-Flagler Distinguished Alumnus in Sustainability. For the business awards, our Business Leadership in Sustainability (BLiS) and Student-Athlete Sustainability Initiative (SASI) Associates research businesses and use the frameworks we teach to propose their top choices, and the Kenan-Flagler MBA Net Impact Chapter uses a rigorous selection process to choose the winners from the pool of nominees. For the alumni award, the winner is selected by an internal committee vote. The event provides an opportunity for innovators to share their stories and be recognized by the Kenan-Flagler Business School’s Ackerman Center for Excellence in Sustainability.
