The College of Business and Technology celebrated Black History Month with a special edition of the CBT Executive in Residence / Distinguished Speaker for Eastern Kentucky University, co-hosted by the EKU Diversity Office. 

CBT partners with the Richmond Chamber of Commerce to bring leaders of business, industry, and government to the EKU campus to address students, faculty, and members of the Richmond community and surrounding areas on current topics and issues.
