On Friday, May 18, Globe University, Minnesota School of Business and Broadview University campuses invite community members to attend free classes provided by faculty, staff and students. These educational workshops are part of the network of career colleges and specialty training centers’ commitment to building communities through education.

Globe University, Minnesota School of Business and Broadview University are part of a premier, family-managed system of career colleges, universities and training centers based in Woodbury, Minn. In total, 26 campuses in Minnesota, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Idaho and Utah will be participating in this network-wide community enrichment day.

“Building Communities Through Education” is the theme for the network of schools’ sixth annual community service day. It underscores the schools’ philosophy and commitment to giving back to the community by having students take an active role in creating and implementing projects that go beyond classroom learning. Educational workshops across the system of specialty skills colleges will range from pet wellness and Skype tutorials for seniors to grant writing, social media and interior design.

Last year’s Community Service Day was held at 26 campuses across five states, with about 800 employees donating approximately 4,500 hours of service to their local communities.

The free workshops are part of a larger nationwide “We SERVE” challenge issued by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) to engage career college students throughout the U.S. in giving back to their communities.

“These workshops are an opportunity for our faculty, staff and students to share their skills, knowledge, dedication and passion for education to make a difference in their local communities,” said Mindy Myhre, director of community outreach and charitable giving for Globe University, MSB and Broadview University. “It also is part of our “WeCare” philosophy, which guides everything we do from academics to scholarships to community partnerships. We believe strongly in serving the communities where our employees and students work, live and go to school. We are excited to invite the community into our campuses to experience our passion for education.”
