Chair of Business Department Receives 2009 Inclusive Leadership Award
Dr. Debbie Psihountas, chair of The School of Business & Technology's business department and assistant professor of finance, is among this year's Inclusive Leadership Class of 2009. The award, given each year by the St. Louis Business Journal, recognizes ethnic minorities who are making their mark on the St. Louis business community.
"The Inclusive Leadership Award puts the spotlight on Debbie's leadership in and out of the classroom, "said Dean Benjamin Akande. "It also reflects on Webster University where she and other outstanding faculty continue to excel at setting a standard for global education."
