Thanks for introducing yourself. I've been trying to connect with business school teachers in an effort to build student led marketing programs that help draw needed operating resources and technology to tutor/mentor programs in different neighborhoods of big cities. With your commitment to mentoring and your role in the university I hope you'll be interested.
