Kellogg Selected to Join Aspen Institute’s Teaching Innovation Program
5/1/2004 - Kellogg will join seven other select business schools and leading corporations in the Teaching Innovation Program (TIP), directed by the Aspen Institute’s Business and Society Program with support from the GE Foundation.
The Aspen Institute is a renowned international non-profit organization devoted to fostering enlightened leadership on contemporary world issues. As part of the TIP program, the Kellogg School and other business schools will develop a curriculum to better prepare graduates for taking the lead in encouraging businesses to contribute to a sustainable global society.
Each business school in the Teaching Innovation Program will participate in three collective strategy sessions with the goal of establishing a pilot project in their respective schools and developing strategies for making other schools aware of these values-oriented programs.
In its applying for the Teaching Innovation Program, the Kellogg School highlighted its ongoing leadership role in promoting dialogue on social impact management among its students in the Public Non-Profit Management and Business and Its Social Environment programs (BASE), its student-run Social Impact Club and the school’s Center for Nonprofit Management, Ford Center for Global Citizenship and Center for Business, Government and Society.
