Leading for Shared Success
Chris Lloyd ’83 (Verizon Communications – Executive Director – Public Policy & Corporate Responsibility)
The role of business in society is changing. Corporations are not focused on just making money. The best corporate citizens view societal challenges as opportunities for business innovation and seek to create value for shareholders and for society.
Chris Lloyd ’83 will share insights regarding how Verizon is connecting its growth strategy to addressing some of society’s critical issues. You may not think of Verizon as a health care or energy company, but Chris will explain Verizon’s “Shared Success” strategy and how the company is using its broadband and wireless technology to enable solutions that improve the quality of health care and enable communities to improve their energy efficiency.
The fellowship will be open to Sophomore Febs, Sophomores, and Junior Febs wanting to engage more intensely with the field of social entrepreneurship. The fellows will become a cohort during their sophomore year and learn collaboratively from each other, be enrolled in a winter term class on social entrepreneurship, integrate theory and practice, and will receive $10,000 to engage in two summers of relevant experiences. Applications can be found at go/mcsefellows. For more information, please see the attached information or contact email@example.com.
This new addition to the Apple family will be in the College Bookstore by next week. This mini is now only 7.9 inches compared to its larger sibling which is 10 inches. Apple wants the owner to experience the beautiful screen and enjoy all the capabilities of a regular iPad, so their screen is larger than a tablet for better viewing of movies, pictures and documents…and it is easier for reading and interacting with than on a tablet. These new iPad mini’s also make the iPad more affordable now with the starting price of $329.00 for a 16GB WiFi only model versus the starting price of the regular iPad is $499.00 for the 16GB WiFi only model. We can take pre-orders on them so you are guaranteed one as soon as they are in. The Holidays are Coming! Call us at 802/443-2038 for options.
We would like to welcome the Language School Students. We also wanted to let you know about our Apple Campus Store, where you can find all you Mac needs as well as bring your Mac in for repair. We have our Apple Authorized Tech here Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in the afternoon.
You will find the latest Mac’s here next week including the featured 15″ Mac with Retina Display.
