Social responsibility and sustainability are becoming more than just buzzwords. Business is changing, and it’s not business as usual anymore.
In this issue of the Baylor Business Review, we discuss the role of business sustainability and corporate social responsibility in our society today. You will be introduced to several alumni who truly understand what it means to be servant leaders, as well as current students looking to make a difference.
The Center for Nonprofit Leadership and Service has been established at Hankamer. This new center conducts research and also offers degree tracks for students interested in future work with nonprofits.
We remember a special supporter of the business school, the late Harry Chavanne, whose legacy continues to provide an endowed chair position at Hankamer: The Chavanne Chair of Christian Ethics in Business. We place a heavy emphasis on ethics in our curriculum as we cultivate students to be impactful business leaders.
We are proudly celebrating our 50th anniversary as an AACSB accredited business school. The opportunity to provide an outstanding education to past, present and future generations is only possible with the work of our faculty, staff, students and supporters of Hankamer. And we are looking forward to what the next 50 years will bring.
