In early January 2014 Professor Karen Mitchell’s Business and Public Policy class took a tour of the Dealer.com facility here in Vermont. Kayla Bittner and Jill Badolato provided the tour and talked with students along the way. It was a great opportunity for students to see corporate social responsibility in action. The tour gave the abstract concepts discussed in class a real world application. While on the tour Professor Mitchell said she could even see ” lightbulbs popping up over student’s heads as they discovered so many concepts.”
Taking tours of local businesses is just one of the many great ways that students get to see concepts in action here at Saint Michael’s.
