Two of Golisano Institute’s values are caring and empowering. What do those mean to you?
Caring and empowering represent action taken on another’s behalf. Those values make others feel welcome by inviting them to be part of the journey.
What excites you most about Golisano Institute?
It’s not every day you get to build something from the ground up. I’ve been fortunate enough to be a part of a few startups and the excitement and activity that surrounds any entrepreneurial venture is very special. It’s very exciting to work at a startup dedicated to helping others grow through education.
