Tuck Business School at Dartmouth Inducted Into the Minority Business Hall of Fame

Amos Tuck

The Amos Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College recently became the first academic institution inducted into the Minority Business Hall of Fame. The business school was honored for its efforts to increase minority access to leadership positions in corporate America.

Special recognition was given to the business school's Minority Business Executive Program. Since 1980 this summer session has offered executive-level training to minority business owners. More than 3,000 students have completed the program over the past quarter-century.

Amos Tuck was a Dartmouth graduate, congressman, abolitionist, and one of the founders of the Republican Party. His son Edward, an international financier who made a fortune in banking and railroads, provided the money to establish the business school at Dartmouth which he named in honor of his father.
