Civic Engagement for Molloy College Business Students

By Anthony Vela

Molloy College business students along with Dr. Maureen L. Mackenzie, Professor of Business at Molloy College, and Freeport town officials.On January 13, 2014, Molloy undergraduate Business students Taylor English, Michael Brennan, Nina Cheng, and Anthony Engelhardt presented the result of their consulting research to the Freeport Village Mayor, Trustees, and Village residents at a public meeting at Freeport Town Hall. The students worked together during the winter intersession to prepare their joint presentation, demonstrating Molloy's commitment to civic engagement.

Here is the link for presentation on Freeport TV, please click the second video. http://www.freeportny.gov/MediaCenter.aspx?CID=Board-of-Trustees-5# The Molloy presentation starts at 7:45 and runs to 25:00.

The client for the students mentioned above was the town of Freeport. The students were broken into three teams and assigned to work on the Freeport Recreational Center, the senior center, and to help change the view of Freeport. Their goal was to address the needs of their client and present their recommendations in a presentation. The town of Freeport may use the action plans the students created.

Some of the things the students worked on included creating events as well as marketing them, a website and social media, community outreach, public announcement videos, tee shirts and other giveaways.

"The students did a really nice job on this project," said Dr. Maureen L. Mackenzie, Professor of Business at Molloy College.
