Living in the Ethical Leaders in Business Learning Community helped me connect with the Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business not only because I was able to connect with students that shared my academic interests, but also because I was able to build relationships with organizations and faculty that I would not have associated with otherwise.Molly Meer, Peer Mentor
