Grand Canyon University has been chosen as a finalist for the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce’s 26th annual Impact Awards.
The awards, which celebrate the impact outstanding companies have on the Valley’s business community and economy, are given in four categories: Community Champion, Economic Driver, Entrepreneurial Excellence and Response to Adversity. Two recipients are chosen for each category.
