We are excited to announce that Professor Al Danto was nominated for our third annual Last Lecture. The Last Lecture was inspired by Randy Pausch's "The Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams."

Established by the Rice Business Alumni Association (RBAA), the Rice Business Alumni Awards annually recognize alumni for outstanding achievements in their professional fields and exemplary leadership. Recipients of these awards embody our four pillars of alumni engagement: community, philanthropy, volunteering and life-long learning.
This means that when reviewing nominations, the selection committee will take into special consideration those alumni who exemplify and consistently engage in supporting their communities through networking, philanthropy, volunteering and a demonstrated passion for learning.
