The senior-level class, Leading People and Projects (MGMT 411), provides a semester-long project for business students called Strive to Thrive Lincoln. The class helps students gain knowledge of philanthropy in the Lincoln community. Students receive hands-on experience focusing on what it takes to manage a grant proposal process which ultimately awards $10,000 to local non-profits made possible through a gift by Rhonda Seacrest. Students also volunteer their service on outreach projects.
The fall Strive to Thrive weekly content on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and this student blog will be run by the social media team of the class. Our team includes six members; Anna Wickham senior management/entrepreneurship major from Columbus, Nebraska; Haojie Yan senior management major from China; Zach Williams senior marketing major from Shorewood, Minnesota; Shelbe Stroh junior management major from Omaha, Nebraska; Ego Obiaka junior management major from Omaha, Nebraska; and Gavin Iverson senior management major from Wahoo, Nebraska.
