MSB – Lakeville Students Apply Ethics to a Good Cause

Posted by on April 28, 2016

Applied Learning Group Winter 16Students often don’t think about how the concepts they’re learning in the classroom can apply to their real lives.  For the students in Lisa Folch’s applied ethics class at Minnesota School of Business – Lakeville, this isn’t strictly the case.

Recently, the applied ethics class held a fundraiser for victims of domestic violence.  The class worked on the service learning project as part of the course objectives and were able to apply the theories they were learning about in class to a real-world situation.

In March 2016, the applied ethics class held a fundraiser for victims of domestic violence.  The class worked on the service learning project as part of the course objectives and were able to apply the theories they were learning about in class to a real-world situation.

Working in tandem with the charity Cornerstone, an organization committed to working with children and adults whose lives have been traumatized by destructive and unhealthy relationships, the students gathered donated items as part of a charity drive. The students asked for a variety of everyday items such as hair brushes, combs, and picks; body wash and lotion; umbrellas and raincoats; and children’s toys.

The results were impressive, with many items being Donated Items Winter 16donated and Cornerstone getting much-needed items for the adults and children they work with, including a lot of fun toys for kids and many toiletry items that are a necessity in this day and age.

The group also helped out at MSB’s recent open house, where they accepted additional donations for the charity drive.

“The manager of Cornerstone sent my students a thank you note as well,” Lisa Folch said, illustrating the impact a small project such as this one has on a nonprofit charity.
