Teaching students the meaning and value of service to others is
ultimately what our programs are about. The program allows students
to experience firsthand the rewards that come from making a
positive contribution to the lives of other people. Students learn
for themselves that giving to others will help lead to success.
Students are placed into challenging situations with
not-for-profit organizations to help tackle important social issues
and solve complex strategic and operational problems – an approach
that links service to the community with academic and career goals,
and underscores the importance of service, generosity of spirit and
personal integrity. The objective is to not only involve students
in meaningful issues that stimulate personal growth, but also to
help them develop valuable skills in the management of
not-for-profit organizations – a segment of growing importance and
sophistication in our nation's economy.
