About the UMSL Economics Alumni Board
The Alumni Board was initiated in 2007 by faculty member Lea Kosnik to help the UMSL Department of Economics better maintain links to our alumni and to get advice, as needed, regarding academic offerings and other department initiatives. The Board also created a Department of Economics Alumni Award to honor alumni who have provided exceptional support to the department and its activities. The Inaugural Board was comprised of alumni John Kovac, Geetanjali Pande and Ryan Metcalf.

The award is given to an alumnus who has shown consistent and exceptional support of the Economics Department and its activities.
