Community Service Learning
The School of Business Administration is committed to developing socially responsible leaders, and incorporates community service projects as a requirement of course study. For example, the MBA Programs have community service projects integrated in the curriculum which form a part of the degree requirements.
The SBA partners with USD's office of Community Service Learning to enhance the opportunities that students have by providing them with the opportunity to learn while giving back.
Thanksgiving House Project
The mission of the Thanksgiving House project is to improve the quality of life for deserving Linda Vista citizens by renovating their homes.
This mission is accomplished by a renovation project completed by USD graduate and undergraduate students who are enrolled in the Project Management course. The home renovation project provides students with the opportunity to learn and apply the tools and techniques of project management while providing community service. The Project Management course is offered every fall semester and the renovation work is completed the week before Thanksgiving, hence the name The Thanksgiving House.
“The Thanksgiving House is a project with real-world relevance that allows students to apply the concepts and tools learned in class and see the impact their efforts have on themselves and the community. The project also reinforces USD’s values-based mission and enables students to use their talents and education to serve others.”
