This year’s College of Business MLK Day of Service saw the Economics Department giving back to the community in a unique way. Dr. William Wood, professor of economics and director of the Center for Economic Education, believes “the College of Business is a caring place, with a culture of caring for each other and the world beyond.” Along with student assistant Kristen Laprade, he organized a website domain and security upgrade for the Sadie Rose Foundation, a small Dayton, Va. nonprofit that provides support for child, infant and pregnancy loss. Dr. Wood added, “here's what's neat about working at the College of Business in connection with all this: the College of Business is an interdisciplinary and technologically active place to work - a place where an economist gets a lot of non-economic knowledge.”
