Business management has become a fast-growing field of study; simultaneously, an increasingly sophisticated and educated public is making stronger demands on contemporary organizations for corporate and social responsibility. Service-learning classes offer students hands-on experience in managing people and projects, dealing with clients, meeting real deadlines, and producing tangible results within budgeted time and resources. Civically engaged curriculum also provides a rich text to discuss complex issues facing 21st century businesses.

Whatever your management specialty and service-learning experience, this workshop will offer you and your colleagues a valuable opportunity to learn more about community-based education, trade ideas with your peers, and draft a plan for further development of service-learning at your institution or in your partnership.

Featured Facilitators:
Laurie DiPadova-Stocks, founding director of the Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement at Northern Kentucky University, part-chair of the Academy of Management’s Public and Nonprofit Division, and an originator of the Academy of Management?s Initiative for the Advancement of Civic Engagement and Service-Learning in Management Education.

John A. Miller, C.R. Lindback Professor of Management at Bucknell University, created a service-learning Management 101 course, versions of which have been taught on over 30 campuses.
