A master volunteer project
As part of a course, MBA students took on the challenge of painting and cleaning housing for the Miriam House, home to the Safer Foundation's tutoring program for young adults. While it's common for management courses throughout the U.S. to use one large task (like building cardboard boats or oversized paper airplanes) to encourage team-building, this St. Ambrose class also gives back to the community.
