Despite technological advancements, the phrase: “It’s not what you know. It’s who
you know.” is still relevant for the modern job seeker. Networking can be intimidating
for students who are just starting their careers. While there are many ways to support
your student’s career and internship search, teaching them how to build and leverage
a network will give them a skill they can use for a life-time. With the introduction of
LinkedIn, it has never been easier to identify the ideal networking contact for your
student.

“DISCERNING THE FUTURE OF HIGHER EDUCATION”
Higher education is in the midst of transformation according to both its critics and its
fans. This presentation by Chancellor Rebecca Chopp will outline some of the
challenges and some of the opportunities but will focus on three discernible trends in
the way knowledge is structured, in how intentional community for students is
shaped, and how narratives of meaning and purpose are articulated. While we can’t
predict the total paradigm change we are experiencing, we will be able to discuss and
debate several emerging directions.

PIONEER SYMPOSIUM: PANEL
“GLOBAL COMPETITIVENESS IN THE 21ST CENTURY: ASSESSING THE COMPATIBILITY
OF PROFITS, PERFORMANCE AND SOCIAL EQUITY”
Join Jim Lentz (BSBA ’77, MBA ’78), CEO, North America Region, Toyota Motor North
America, Inc.; Joe Saunders (BSBA ’67, MBA ’68), former Chairman and CEO of Visa,
Inc.; and Mary Gardner (EMBA ’98), Vice President of Business Resilience at Zurich
North America for a dynamic, interactive discussion on what role, if any, private
enterprise has in addressing some of the world’s most pressing economic and noneconomic challenges. As Adam Smith articulated over two centuries ago, the
presence of multiple buyers and sellers competing with each other in active markets
is one of the defining features of capitalism. While the benefits of market-based
capitalism are self-evident (especially in comparison to centrally planned or statist
alternatives we’ve witnessed) the debate as to the role of businesses and of business
leaders in today’s global and connected marketplace, remains an active one. If
competition is the essence of business and if (as in any competition) the goal is to
win, how should businesses respond to conditions of [increasingly] visible levels of
global social inequity? Moderator: Brent Chrite, dean of the Daniels College of
Business.
