Interim Dean, Nancy McIntyre

There is no question that the time B&E students spend in the classroom is invaluable. However, an annual event that took place at B&E this month epitomizes the value of learning outside the classroom. Students enrolled in the Corporate Social Responsibility course are given the chance to award $20,000 to local nonprofit organizations, but that includes the tough job of evaluating applicants for the grant money. Students must look at the track record of the organizations, as well as the benefit and impact the grant would have. It’s no easy task, but it’s not supposed to be. The program has injected more than a quarter of a million dollars into local nonprofit organizations since 2001, thanks to funding from B&E faculty and WVU alumni. This year, nine organizations received grants out of 27 applicants. This experience helps students recognize the importance of corporate social responsibility, and the role of business in giving back to the community. Every student. Every day.
