English 183: Writing for Business Professional Communications Program R EQUEST FOR P ROPOSALS TIMEFRAME: 21 September 2010 through 2 December 2010 T EAM M EMO : 14 January 2011 P RESENTATIONS : 10 February 2011 P ROPOSALS : no later than 17 February 2011 C OLLATERALS AND R EPORT /E VALUATION : no later than 9 March 2011 We are seeking community service projects that will allow Business 183 students an opportunity to apply the skills and understandings they have acquired during their tenure at Santa Clara University, projects that will allow them to work collaboratively on an endeavor with “real world” application and to further the University’s Mission. As such, students will design, develop, and deliver community service to a registered nonprofit, 501(c) beneficiary in need of specific support (e.g., fundraising, increasing awareness, providing much needed goods and services, etc.). Both the beneficiary and the project per se must directly relate to SCU’s mission of competence, conscience, and compassion. Part of college is planning what you want to be. But you can also think through who you want to be and how you want to live your life. SCU's mission and values can help you become the kind of leader who is highly competent, who acts with conscience, and who is genuinely compassionate toward others. The Jesuit advantage at Santa Clara University is the benefit that comes from connecting every aspect of your university education to create a total learning experience. Students here become members of a mutually supportive, intellectually powerful, compassionate, and open-minded community. http://www.scu.edu/jesuit/index.cfm
