Globe University and its Affiliate Schools Honor Community Partners at Annual Celebration

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) September 24, 2012

Globe University and several of its affiliate schools, including Minnesota School of Business (MSB), Minnesota School of Cosmetology (MSC) and the Institute of Production and Recording (IPR), honored 100 community partners during their annual community appreciation luncheon. The goal of the event was to showcase student applied learning projects, honor local partner companies and to thank partner organizations for their continued support.

Every year we host a luncheon to honor our community partners for their support in making our applied learning philosophy a reality, said Kaye Myhre, Vice President at Globe University. Their support is vital to the success of our student applied learning programs, as they provide crucial real-life experiences that prepare our students for their careers upon graduating.

Among the honored partner organizations was CaringBridge, a local nonprofit dedicated to providing people with a way to connect and update loved ones during health events. As part of the partnership, a marketing class from Globe Universitys Lakeville campus collaborated with CaringBridge employees to create a campaign promotion called All Hands In. Students created flyers and distributed brochures around campus to create awareness about CaringBridges mission and all of the great things they do in the community.

The students from Globe University went above and beyond to make this program a success and help us create more awareness about CaringBridge in the Lakeville community, said Sona Mehring, Founder and CEO of CaringBridge. We were thrilled to partner with such a talented and committed group of professionals.

Diabetes Sentry was also honored for teaming up with MSB accounting students from the Elk River campus. The students worked with Michael Russin, the organizations Vice President of Sales and Marketing, to set up a five-year budget plan for the fledgling organization. I was blown away by the students work, exclaimed Russin. Thanks to their [students] work I was able to secure funding for the business. Russin would like to continue to work with MSB students.

Other honored partners at the event were National Kidney Foundation, Listening House, the JLR Foundation/IDEAWERKS, BCs Closet and Make a Hero Foundation.

These community partnerships exemplify Globe Universitys commitment to giving back to the community by having students take an active role in creating and implementing projects that go beyond classroom learning. This learning by doing curriculum is part of an applied learning philosophy that is woven into every degree and diploma program at Globes network of career schools. Through course-specific assignments and projects, students are exposed to an array of experiences enabling them to exercise their skills in the classroom, the workplace, and the local community to ensure a fulfilling educational experience.
