Scholar Spotlight

Scholar Spotlight series:
Partnerships for Good

At the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD), you won’t find groundbreaking research sitting on a shelf. We bring our discoveries to people across Minnesota and the world, because we understand partnership has the power to change lives.  Across for-profit and non-profit sectors, our far-reaching collaborations, innovative approaches in education, and evidence-based practices to support mental and physical wellbeing improve the human condition.

In this Scholar Spotlight series, you’ll learn from CEHD faculty and staff who turn research into practice so what is learned at the University can lead to better outcomes for all. You will be inspired as you learn about partnerships that were built to last and make the world a better place—partnerships for good.

Partnering to Give Students a Head Start

Presented on April 26, 2022

Because of their vital role in business, professional sales people are among the best paid employees for a company. Their knowledge, expertise, and experience is essential for businesses to succeed in today’s competitive environment. The Center for Sales Leadership and Education (CSLE) at CEHD gives students a head start furthering their sales education by instilling practical skills and offering applied business experience through education, research, and its many partnerships. During the pandemic, CSLE Executive Director Todd Williams partnered with Signature Consultants, a national IT staffing and recruiting agency, to develop a new approach to bring the benefits of CSLE to support the classroom, students, and the sales community. Hear from Todd Williams and Signature Consultants’ University Recruiting Manager KJ Brown as they talk about their insights and their case study with this collaborative approach.
