Engage with Purpose
Regardless of where our community members are in their personal and professional journeys — from having just walked across the stage at commencement to finishing storied careers and building their legacies — we are passionate about providing people with the tools and opportunities to increase their impact.
Mentor a Future Business Leader
Mike Fries, CEO and Vice Chairman of Liberty Global, speaks with a business student after his Business Day presentation at CSU.
Greatness is rarely achieved without the helping hands of those around us who share our goals and hold a passion for seeing others succeed.
From pairing seasoned business professionals with students to peer and near-peer mentoring that connects upperclassmen, underclassmen, and high school students from across rural and diverse communities in Colorado, our mentoring programs bring together all the members of our College.
Although the types of mentors and mentees vary, the goal is always the same: create meaningful and supportive relationships that change people's lives.
The Professional Mentoring Program starts at the beginning of each academic year. All participants commit to meeting at least twice per semester, either in person or virtually, for one academic year.
Every year, the College facilitates scores of professional mentoring connections. This year, will you lend your insights and experience to help to increase that impact?
The Institute for Entrepreneurship provides a variety of engagement opportunities for those who want to volunteer their time serving as domain experts and venture advisors, assisting in implementing programs and providing general mentorship to aspiring entrepreneurs from across CSU and the community.
Women in Business Association
Launched in 2016, The Women in Business Association (WIBA) in the CSU College of Business is a student-led organization for undergraduate and graduate students who have a shared value of advancing women in the business community. WIBA provides opportunities to build community, discuss gender-related topics, engage in philanthropy and service projects, build leadership competencies, and network with companies and prominent female leaders in local industries.
Support an Impact MBA Summer Fellowship
The Impact MBA, Corporate Sustainability track prepares students to make sustainability a part of the purpose and profitability of a business. As part of the program, students are paired with a business partner to identify, analyze and address a sustainability issue. Businesses from across Colorado can support these students by hosting a summer fellowship. During the fellowship, students help businesses meet changing sustainability requirements, prepare for future growth and meet new market demands.
Make a Gift and Be the Difference
From scholarships to faculty endowments and dedicated program support, financial donations make an immediate impact on the lives of our students and educators, as well to accelerate academic program development.
No matter the amount, every dollar makes a difference and we encourage our community members to explore the options for impacting change.
