Thomas S. Fitzmaurice, assistant Professor of Business at Mount Saint Mary College, will continue this semester’s Investigating Research on Campus (iROC) series with “Service-Learning in Business Programs” on Monday, March 1 at noon.
The talk will take place virtually via Zoom. It’s free and open to the public, but you must register to attend. Register at www.msmc.edu/iROCFitzmaurice.
In recent years, service-learning and civic engagement programs have become widespread in higher education, both as extracurricular, volunteer activities and as curriculum requirements. Fitzmaurice’s upcoming presentation will focus on how service-learning is addressed in the Business curriculum and how it can assist in developing ethical business leaders.
Fitzmaurice has taught in Catholic education on both the college and secondary level at institutions that place a high level of importance on service and service-learning, including Mount Saint Mary College. His talk is based on a presentation he made to the Northeast Business and Economic Association last year.
He has served at the Mount, teaching both undergraduate and graduate finance courses, since 2017. Fitzmaurice holds a BE from Manhattan College, an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, and an MS and PhD from Fordham University.
The goal of the college’s iROC is to provide a forum for Mount faculty, staff, and students to showcase their research endeavors with the college and local communities. Presentations include research proposals, initial data collection, and completed research projects.
Mount Saint Mary College, ranked a Top-Tier University by U.S. News & World Report, offers bachelor’s and master’s degree programs for careers in healthcare, business, education, social services, communications, media, and the liberal arts.
