Honoring an Outstanding Educator

Jeffrey WallsYour contribution will help impact student success at Indiana Tech for years to come. The Cunningham Reinvention will include a major renovation to the College of Business, and offers the opportunity to honor one of Tech’s most impactful professors, Dr. Jeffrey Walls.

Dr. Walls came to Indiana Tech in 1989. Since his arrival, our business school has grown by significantly and has seen student enrollment expand internationally. Dr. Walls has authored multiple publications. He is a six-time recipient of the President’s Distinguished Service Award and a three-time Faculty of the Year award winner. However, his biggest accomplishment has been the impact he has had on his students. Not only does Dr. Walls instruct, advise and sponsor current students, he continues to mentor and help graduates years after they have left Tech.

The two personal stories at right only scratch the surface in describing the kind of positive influence Dr. Walls has had on the lives of business school graduates. Without question, his contribution to this university is immeasurable.
