Gifts to the Business School Fund support curricular innovations, including those that enhance the learning experience for today's students. Some examples include:
- Opportunities for multidisciplinary and team-based collaboration. For example, as part of expanded group learning offerings, the Bass Seminar Biodesign Innovation brings together students from the GSB, School of Engineering, and School of Medicine to develop new medical device prototypes.
- Opportunity for an international experience that is required of every student. For example, the Service Learning Program sends students around the world to work alongside social entrepreneurs in fields such as microfinance, urban redevelopment, health care, and HIV/AIDS prevention, who are working to better their communities.
- Opportunities for leadership development. Arbuckle Leadership Fellows are second-year students who coach and mentor first-year students during Leadership Laboratories, the experiential learning component of the Strategic Leadership course. The Fellows help develop the interpersonal skills critical to professional advancement and leadership effectiveness: developing, motivating, and influencing.
