Students Featured in News for Community-Based Learning Project

Students Featured in News for Community-Based Learning Project

University students Daniel Crossan, Media, and Jacob Lisicky, Whitehall, were quoted in an article that appeared in Yahoo! News and Scranton Times-Tribune about their experience conducting an inventory survey of Scranton businesses. The real-life project is a community-based learning assignment for their Principles of Management and Entrepreneurship II (Mgt 352) course.

Through the project, the students are calling Scranton businesses to update their information and learn about their needs, challenges and experiences. They will then create an up-to-date business inventory that captures the current climate of business in Scranton that will be shared with community partners to provide them with a better understanding of how they can best work to support businesses in the City of Scranton.

Ovidiu Cocieru, Ph.D., assistant professor of marketing, management and entrepreneurship who teaches the course, was also quoted in the article as were owners of Scranton businesses and representatives of the project’s community partners, which include the City of Scranton (Office of Economic Development); Scranton Tomorrow; NeighborWorks Northeastern PA; and the United Neighborhood Centers of Northeastern PA.
