Student Organization

In 2007, ten Neeley Fellows came together to form the Neeley Fellows Students Organization (NFSO) with the intention of "helping Neeley Fellows achieve their full potential in the Neeley Fellows program by creating a vibrant community of committed students, faculty members, alumni, parents, corporate partners, and non-profit organizations, while accelerating the Neeley School's connection with the greater business community."

Goals of NFSO:

  • Represent and promote the students of Neeley Fellows with the highest degree of personal integrity and professional ethics¬†
  • Create situations in which Neeley Fellows can build camaraderie through social engagements and give back to the community
  • Serve as a liaison to faculty, administration, the University, and other student organizations
  • Promote Neeley Fellows as part of recruiting efforts for the next cohort and serve as an ambassador within Neeley, TCU and business community.
The purpose of student governance in Neeley Fellows is to provide opportunities to lead activities, initiate events, provide a student's perspective for the program, as well as provide an outlet to express ideas or concerns regarding the program. NFSO officers are elected each year by their peers at the end of each fall semester.  Each NFSO officer has a specific area of focus and responsibility.
