Recent History: Though only formed about 1 year ago in December 2007, the Rose Center has completed two major projects with exceptional success for both the students and the non-profit organizations. We prepared an economic impact study for our local Habitat for Humanity, which assist them in providing documentable need statements for current and potential donors. We also assisted a brand new non-profit organization to host the first ever community gathering to provide opportunities and educate local citizens in ways to lower their carbon footprint, and live healthier lives.
I am quite proud of our work. However, we have run into some problems with faculty mentors, seeking personal recognition and interfering with student efforts. Unfortunately, we did not have much success in the enlisted assistance from college administrators to control their instructors. The issue has brought our organization to a standstill. Perhaps, the Obama administration might which to pursue this avenue at a government level. I believe there is much value to inspiring our youngest and brightest to give back from their strengths. I would also welcome any comments from the discussion members here for a solution. Thank you for reading this posting!
Overview: Upper division students, who are eager to put their newly developed education into actual experience, seek internship opportunities. For the best students, there is a desire to grow beyond the apprentice experience, use their newly developed analytical and research strategies and to work on real world problem solving.
Elsewhere in the area, the breadth of their missions frequently over burdens the leaders and staff of community service organizations. These leaders have both devotion and a burning passion, but often do not possess either the time or the capital to hire consultants.
Our mission is to bring together these two groups for the benefit of both parties. We currently operate an independent research oriented service education center. The fundamental goals of the center are the provision of research and analysis experience for upper division students, and the delivery of problem solving services for community action groups and governmental organizations.
