Charlton College of Business and Sustainability Studies
“One of the most rewarding experiences of the Fall 2011 semester has been mentoring the formation of UMass Dartmouth’s newest student organization: Collegiate DECA (Facebook).
Nearly 30 self-organizing freshmen and sophomores banded together to form this new chapter, which is part of an international organization of more than 250,000 students that values competence, integrity, values and teamwork. Students perform community service, network with alumni and industry professionals, in addition to working in teams to develop business skills applicable to all majors. All of this fun in preparation for a spring national competition to highlight their skills learned at UMass Dartmouth!”
