From Day One: This
annual event, held the day before the start of classes, turns
the Babson campus into a marketplace of social innovation. Creating
economic and social value is serious business at Babson, and providing
expertise, resources, ideas, and entertainment around making a difference is
the focus of this day.
Babson Board Fellows: Babson
Board Fellows is an experiential learning program that places Babson MBA
students and alumni as non-voting members of nonprofit boards. The nonprofits
benefit from fresh insight as well as from student contributions to board
committees and special projects. Students benefit from exposure to board-level
decision making, mentorship, and through working on projects. The goals of the
program are to support local nonprofits, to build a culture of service within
the Babson MBA community, and to give Babson students another opportunity to
put their MBA skills into practice.
Lewis Institute Changemaker Award: The Lewis Institute
Changemaker Award is designed to recognize members of the Babson Community who
have set something in motion in order to create positive change. We invite all
members of the Babson Community to nominate an individual who exemplifies the idea
of creating positive change. This annual award is presented each April to
undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and staff members (one per
category) who are working hard to make Babson--and the world--a better place.
Babson Food Day: Food
is big news these days. Questions of nutrition and health, food safety,
supply-chain ethics, energy, sustainability, and access are
ever-increasing concerns. On Babson Food Day, we’ll acknowledge and
explore these grave dilemmas, but always with an eye toward the “bite-sized”
action step that the attendee can take now to begin to make a difference.
