For the first time ever, Jesuit M.B.A. programs nationwide are joining together for a single purpose. Many of the more than 1,000 M.B.A. students from the Williams College of Business are joining the 27 other Jesuit colleges and universities across America in a national day of volunteer service on April 21.

“This National Day of Service directly relates to the mission of each M.B.A. program found in each Jesuit college and university: to provide graduate management education that prepares students for future success while adhering to the Jesuit tradition of educating the entire person, providing learning beyond core courses, and serving the community,” says Jennifer Bush, executive director for Xavier’s M.B.A. programs.


Xavier’s MBA students will be found doing the following on April 21:

  • FreeStore Food Bank collections: From April 9-20, donations of non-perishable food (dry and canned goods) and hygiene and cleaning items will be accepted in collection bins at the M.B.A. office and ground level entrances at Hailstones Hall.
  • Finneytown’s McEvoy Park: From 9:00 a.m. until noon on April 21, Xavier M.B.A. students will work with the Cincinnati Park Board to clean up and prepare this park for use by children and their families.
  • Relay For Life: M.B.A. studentswill walk (or sponsor those who do walk) to raise funds for cancer research.
