This research is part of a semester-long project from undergraduate students at Molloy College in Rockville Centre, NY. The theme emerges from a pedagogical philosophy that an essential learning outcome of their undergraduate studies is the significant influence that business has upon society while working with a local nonprofit. For example, having students enter into the business world with an integrated disposition that encompasses not only the need for qualifying skill sets, but that of ethical and social leadership should be prevalent among today’s business leaders. The learning activity leading to the learning outcome is requiring the undergraduate business students to experience this type of real-world project. The students are presented with an opportunity to study pressing issues that are present within their assigned non-profit and they are to collectively make a set of solution-driven recommendations that will ultimately lead to social good.
