The Business & Tourism department at MSVU is a community of people, experiences, opinions and voices. Our blog will reflect that community with the inclusion of guest bloggers who have stories to share of value to our community.
Today's blogger is Professor Ryan MacNeil, our newest faculty member in the Department of Business & Tourism & Hospitality Management.
SOMETIMES, THE WORLD
(...AND THAT’S WHY WE NEED SOCIAL LEADERS LIKE YOU!)
This fall, the Department of Business & Tourism is launching a new campus-wide social leadership program, open to all Mount students. The program is a hands-on chance to lead positive change in the world.
We’re offering a social leadership certificate that will look great on your resumé. But we’re hoping that the bigger reason you’ll want to join the program is to have an impact on society.
To earn the “year 1” social leadership certificate, you will complete 15 hours of volunteer work, participate in two professional development activities (including our social enterprise conference in February), and work with a team of your friends to run a social project in the community. At the end of next term, you’ll document your social impact “portfolio-style”.
As a new Assistant Professor here at the Mount, I’m excited to be leading this program. We’ll meet every other week for an hour to discuss social leadership and make plans for our projects. A preliminary drop-in information session is scheduled for Wednesday, September 26 from 2-3 pm in Seton room 404. If you can’t attend, you can contact me for more information or to join the group. Reach me via email (email@example.com) or twitter (@ryanmacneil).
