Expanding the circle, embracing the community
|What's a Discipline-Based Dual Language Immersion Model®, and why does it work so well?
How can an academic curriculum directly support business development in our community?
Where should South Floridians turn when the topic is the Hispanic community, both locally and beyond?
These were among the topics of informal discussion at the Sistema Universitario Ana G Méndez's (SUAGM is the official acronym in Spanish) first two Meet and Greet events this September. One was held in Dade County, at the Westin Colonnade Coral Gables, and one in Broward County, at the Tower Club.
The Meet and Greet program offers an opportunity for SUAGM board members to reach out to their circle of influencers and bring them together for an introduction to SUAGM. The setting is cocktail-casual, the mood is relaxed—and the interest was keen.
"A key role of the university is as a community resource, whether in the capacity of thought leader or conference host," says Syndia A. Nazario-Cardona, SUAGM South Florida Campus Director. "We're encouraged to see that our Meet and Greet program has already planted us on the radar of so many community leaders."
Corporate business leaders, chambers, international councils, business development groups, and city governments were among those who now know SUAGM better. So glad to have met them all!
