The School of Accountancy‘s Accounting Club was presented with the Award of Excellence for Outstanding Student Chapters from the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA), an international association. The accounting club was evaluated in three areas: planning and evaluation, programs and activities and administrative. The chapter will receive an award of $1,000 and a trophy to be presented at the next IMA conference.
To receive the Award of Excellence, student chapters must complete all elements of the program and demonstrate that they have gone above and beyond to promote IMA membership and student programs.
The School of Travel Industry Management’s Eta Sigma Delta (ESD) student chapter was named Chapter of Distinction for the 2019–2020 school year from the International Council of Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Education. The ESD Chapter of Distinction Award recognizes a leading chapter for their efforts in advancing and upholding its five points of honor: excellence, leadership, creativity, service and ethics.
The ESD honor society for hospitality and tourism was one of three top chapters globally. They earned this distinction by participating in the National Clean-Day event organized by the Rotary Club of East Honolulu, the Hawaiian Humane Society PetBlock Paina and the Hawaii Foodbank’s CANstruction and Senior Food Box Drive.
