A Conversation with Habitat for Humanity CEO Jonathan Reckford

 

Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International, shared his career story and experiences running one of the most recognizable international nonprofit organizations in an evening campus conversation with Elon University President Leo M. Lambert.  The event was the formal start of Elon University’s yearlong focus on opportunities for students considering service programs after college.

 

Elon Alumni Share Their Service Experiences

The True Life: Alumni Experiences in Service Panel & Live Stream was another event held to support Elon University’s year-long focus on post-graduate service opportunities.  Five alumni with backgrounds in service participated in a panel to connect with students interested in a year of service. Some panelists appeared in person and others joined the panel remotely via Google Hangouts on Air.
