Sterling H. Schoen Achievement Award

Established in honor of The Consortium’s founder, Dr. Sterling H. Schoen, this award recognizes individuals for their courageous leadership and commitment to advancing the goal of equal opportunity for underrepresented minorities in American business. In 2021, The Consortium bestowed this award on Rebekah Lewin, senior assistant dean of admissions and programs at the University of Rochester Simon Business School. She is also a long-standing member of The Consortium’s Board of Trustees, most recently serving as vice chair.

“The Sterling H. Schoen Achievement Award is particularly meaningful to me. The University of Rochester Simon Business School was the fourth school to join The Consortium, and we have been proud partners for more than 50 years,” says Lewin. “This award not only reflects my professional commitment to diversity and inclusion in education and in business, but also my own personal values. After working at Simon for more than 20 years and implementing initiatives that focus on diversity, equity and inclusion, we were recently ranked the most diverse MBA program among the top 50 schools rated by U.S. News & World Report. I am deeply grateful to The Consortium for its efforts and for recognizing the value in mine.”
