This fall we have had a host of college visitors who have greatly added to the educational experience of the business students at Jewell. Our Truex lecturer, Mr. Matt Urbanek of ViraCor-IBT, informed our understanding of capital markets with his superb presentation the evening of October 18. We learned from a worldwide expert on justice, Dr. Nicholas Wolterstorff, and we have had dozens of classroom visitors such as Mr. Tom Bloch, Mayor Peggy Dunn, Mr. Clint Donaldson and many others who have given their valuable time to invest in the learning experience at Jewell.
This component of our curriculum continues to grow, and we have found that students appreciate the interaction with leaders in the Kansas City business community. We see the education process as one that includes developing foundational knowledge, learning from the best, and applying the theories and ideas discussed in class. Therefore it is critical that we stay in touch with alumni and friends in the business community to keep abreast of new developments in the field.
As you read the latest edition of our newsletter, celebrate the good things happening on the hill and stay in touch with us about your recent endeavors. As always, feel free to drop us a note with an update.
Thank you for your continued support of Jewell! Best wishes for the holidays!
Dr. Kelli J. Schutte, Chair of The Department of Business and Leadership
