For Business Leaders

Business leaders can benefit from the civic mission of higher education.

Business leaders already recognize the need for more applied learning experiences and greater emphasis on core professional skills in higher education. These core skills for professional success are the same core skills needed for civic participation, and both can be built through community experiences.
