The George B. Delaplaine Jr. School of Business

Following the lessons of George Delaplaine's business leadership, we will teach you not only to become corporate leaders, but also to serve as good community citizens.

The George B. Delaplaine Jr. School of Business creates a dedicated space for business students and creates a hub for social entrepreneurship in the community. Students at the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral levels move beyond the classroom and into the lives of others.

We are developing applied research centers that integrate teaching and learning, with direct outcomes in the community and creating a leadership institute that will provide dedicated resources to promising emerging leaders to guide the rest of campus.

Social ventures have rapidly risen to account for more than a third of all new U.S. entrepreneurial activity. This shift in business mindset demands new leadership and new ideas. The George B. Delaplaine Jr. School of Business presents the opportunity to lead at this junction and create a distinct means for teaching business in this new economy and an aspirational model for others to follow.
