Business Day theme: Sustainability

The College of Business celebrates April 16 as Business Day, an annual event that brings business leaders to campus for both formal and informal interaction with students, faculty and the entire campus community. This year’s presentations will be on the theme of sustainability.

Business Day begins at 9:30 a.m. with a talk by Vincent Stanley, director of Patagonia Philosophy, and concludes with a presentation by Joe Ellis, president and CEO of the Denver Broncos, which begins at 3:30 p.m. All events take place in the Lory Student Center Theater. They are free and open to the public, but tickets are required to ensure seats.

Tickets available online at and at the Lory Student Center. All events will conclude by 5:45 p.m.

“Business Day is designed to be a day of learning and thinking about business on a large and meaningful scale,” said Madi Book, chair of this year’s Business Day. “This year’s featured speakers will inspire attendees to think about business with a conscience, and about how our collective business exchanges and interactions impact our world.

Also on the program will be Tom Vogl, chief operating officer of Barn2Door, formerly with The Clymb, Redfin, and REI; an alumni panel and networking opportunities.

Complete schedule of events.

This is the 37th year for Business Day, which is created and organized entirely by the student leadership within the College of Business.
