Please join us for this very special celebration of Professor Ray Horton's final academic year as Director of the Social Enterprise Program.

For more than three decades, Ray Horton, the Frank R. Lautenberg Professor of Ethics and Corporate Governance, has worked tirelessly to transform the role that Columbia Business School students play in business and society. In 1983, Ray founded the Public and Nonprofit Management Program at Columbia Business School, which was later renamed the Social Enterprise Program and widened to include social entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility and international development. While Ray's early research focused on public management and municipal labor relations in New York City, he has in recent years taught the courses Board and Executive Management of Nonprofits and Conceptual Foundations of Business, and he plans to continue teaching Modern Political Economy.

As Ray passes the mantle of Program Director to Ray Fisman, the Lambert Family Professor of Social Enterprise, we would like to pay tribute to him and celebrate his legacy through the establishment of a Social Enterprise Program fund in his honor. We ask anyone who has known Ray--whether as a student, alumnus, or friend of the program--and who believes in the cause to which he has dedicated his professional life to please consider contributing to the Ray Horton Social Enterprise Fund, which will be used to support the wonderful program that Ray created at Columbia Business School. To give to the Social Enterprise Fund in honor of Professor Horton, please contact Sarah Haberman at 212-851-4321 or send your gift to www.gsb.columbia.edu/makeagift/rayhorton.
