“This was a good balance—I got to apply skills that I’ve used in the past, while at the same time learning about the nonprofit world. My experience has been fantastic from all sides, and I’m thankful that I had the opportunity to apply the things I’ve been learning at Ross to an area that I care about, for an organization that’s doing it so well!”
— Ryan Whisnant, MBA/MS ‘10, Impact Corps Intern with the Urban Ecology Institute
