Guest Speaker:

 Deborah Finch is an Associate Teaching Professor in the Manning School of Business. Her   journey to teaching in higher education included homeschooling her four children until   they  went to college, and returning to college herself to earn an MBA and an Ed. D. Her   active community involvement includes volunteering and serving on local nonprofit   boards.  Dr. Finch believes the best way a student can get an education is to take advantage   of opportunities in experiential education, service learning, and study abroad experiences. She sees her role as a guide and facilitator, with the hope of helping her students become lifelong learners.
