Team MBA

Under the umbrella of Team MBA, business students, as well as faculty and staff, have been raising money and giving service to a variety of important causes. At the same time, they've been communicating an important message about the current and future leadership of the business profession. The numbers tell a part of the story: $244,000 raised since August 2005, and about 5,100 volunteer hours. For these men and women, community engagement is more than a phrase.

Here is just a brief sampling of some Team MBA activities in recent months:

  • Livestrong® Challenges in Denver, Philadelphia, and Austin this fall netted more than $100,000 for cancer research. Those involved were from business schools at the University of Denver, Georgetown University, Southern Methodist University, and University of Tulsa.
  • Students and staff from Rollins College took part in the Race for the Cure®, and those from Thunderbird walked 60 miles in the Susan G. Komen Three-Day Breast Cancer Walk.
  • At St. Thomas University, students and staff packaged meals for hungry children through Feed My Starving Children®.
  • Washington University students and staff worked with Habitat for Humanity® and Americorps® on "Olin Serves Day."
  • College of William and Mary students and staff took part in Habitat for Humanity®, and Tulane students helped build Habitat for Humanity® Musicians' Village in New Orleans's Lower 9th Ward.
  • University of Pittsburgh students and staff, working with two other local organizations, built a playground for children.
  • University of Alabama-Birmingham students and staff packaged food for those in need with Magic City Harvest for World Food Day.
