The School's inaugural group of Service Leadership Fellows gathered for a Class Day
breakfast celebration. For students interested in working in social enterprises after
graduation, the new program matches them with nonprofit and governmental entities and provides
salary subsidies for one year.
Senior Associate Dean and MBA Program chair W. Carl Kester said that he hopes the program will
further the School's mission of contributing to the well-being of society. We want
our graduates not simply to be managers of competence but also of conscience, Kester told the
fellows, their guests, and a group of faculty and administrators who worked on the program.
Fellowship recipients and the organizations for which they will work included (back row) Mark
