As the year draws to a close and you reflect on the things that have made an impact on you in 2023, we want to thank you for making an impact on Smith students. Experiential learning opportunities give students access to industry leaders and allow them to uncover current challenges in business, build their practical skills, and help their community. These unique experiences are possible thanks to the generous gifts from alumni and friends of the Smith School.

Experiential learning opportunities are available to graduate and undergraduate students. This year students have helped vulnerable populations impacted by financial fraud cases. They have explored ESG and investment, learned from industry professionals during classroom visits and gained valuable feedback on projects from professionals in the field. They have partnered with state leaders to help improve the lives of veterans. They have listened as industry giants shared their wealth of knowledge and words of wisdom that can lead to success in business—and in life.

The loyalty and commitment from the Smith School community enables us to provide a broader, more immersive student educational experience. We hope you will consider supporting our  Smith Initiatives as we look forward to the Next 25.
