Pepperdine University Students Make Community Their Priority
The Service Leadership Project at Pepperdine University is a required course taken by undergraduate business administration majors in accounting, business, and international business as well as nonprofit management minors. The course is designed to blend academic study with community service. In this course, the students form consulting teams to serve non-profit organizations by applying business concepts and skills to mutually agreed-upon projects.
In addition to the consulting experience, the students explore Robert Greenleaf’s concept of Servant Leadership. The servant leadership model puts serving others — including employees, customers, and the community — as the number one priority. Servant Leadership emphasizes increased service to others, a holistic approach to work, a sense of community, and shared decision-making power.
During the fall semester of 2022, Jay Nolan Community Services was privileged to work with an amazing team of students as part of their project. Our consulting team, Apricus Consulting, did a fantastic job analyzing our practices and materials to prepare a comprehensive Strategic Recruiting Plan for Jay Nolan to implement in 2023. With the challenge of finding qualified talent greater than ever, we are excited to put this plan into practice and extremely grateful to Connie, Juhee, Anita, Shaun, and Pablo, as well as Professor Regan Schaffer, for an amazing experience and a fantastic final project!
