Social enterprise major strengthened by key developments, new funding

Yet another way to make a positive impact is now available to new Kellogg School graduates courtesy of the Social Enterprise at Kellogg (SEEK) major and a generous gift from Mr. and Mrs. Alan Leventhal.

A significant contribution from the Leventhals funds two initiatives taking shape at Kellogg this year. The Beacon Capital Partners Fellowship Program, named for Mr. Leventhal's firm where he is chairman and CEO, will place a Kellogg graduate with a nonprofit, public entity or nongovernmental organization for a year-long fellowship that focuses on issues critical to the organization and the greater community. A Kellogg faculty member will advise the fellow and then facilitate dissemination of the fellow's research, sharing these insights with SEEK students.

Criteria used by a committee of faculty, administrators and students to match fellows with an organization include an essay, relevant academic and professional experience, and civic leadership. 

Organizations wishing consideration must provide an application, job description and profile of an executive mentor with whom the fellow will work closely. The selected hiring organization will pay the fellow's salary, expected to be a minimum of $40,000 plus benefits, which the Kellogg School will also match, up to $45,000.

In another SEEK initiative, Kellogg will welcome its first Beacon Capital Partners Civic Leader in Residence, Christopher Crane, CEO of Opportunity International. During his multiday visit in May, Crane will address corporate social responsibility.

"Chris is a wonderful choice to inaugurate this residency because of his personal commitment to socially responsible global leadership and the unique work Opportunity International does throughout the world," said Liz Howard, associate director of the SEEK program.
