DEDICATION CEREMONY: On Thursday, 400 members of the Stonehill community gathered to dedicate our new School of Business building, named for trustee and alumnus Leo Meehan, President & CEO of W. B. Mason. The event involved a ribbon-cutting, a blessing by President John Denning, C.S.C., student-guided tours of the new building, and music by The Buzz, a rock band comprised of five alums. Take a look.
BUSINESS ETHICS: “Schools like Stonehill have ethics and moral reasoning built into their curricular DNA. Business ethics has long been a staple of business education at the College. The humanities core flows outwards to our business and pre-professional pursuits.” -Deans Debra Salvucci and Peter Ubertaccio writing in the Boston Business Journal about why corporate culture needs to consider not just shareholder returns but also community impact. Read their essay.
