The Globe Education Network of schools, which includes Globe University, Minnesota School of Business, Minnesota School of Cosmetology, the Institute of Production Recording and two other career colleges, has been a wonderful partner of Make-A-Wish Minnesota since 2007. Globe Education Network (GEN) has served students of Minnesota for the past 135 years. Their educational offerings are diverse and career focused. The colleges have degree and technical programs in business, technology, health sciences, legal sciences, creative media and cosmetology, among others. Over the years, GEN-affiliated schools have grown to be leaders in private post-secondary education. The foundation of their We Care mission is caring for their students and community, and this is evident through the work the colleges have done with Make-A-Wish Minnesota.
Globe Education Network has supported Make-A-Wish Minnesota in a variety of ways. Students from GEN-affiliated colleges help make a difference with Make-A-Wish Minnesota through applied learning projects, where they use the skills they are learning in the classroom. Some of these projects included marketing and promotion work for events, graphic design and video production for the Wish Ball, and even helping grant a wish. Wish child Sabrina recorded her very own CD at the Institute of Production and Recording utilizing state-of-the-art recording studios, staff and student expertise. GEN also has made charitable donations and served through volunteer efforts. Recently, Globe Education Network hosted a corporate happy hour at the Institute of Production Recording, inviting business partners and other corporations to learn more about Make-A-Wish Minnesota’s upcoming Walk for Wishes on August 9. GEN is continuing their efforts to raise awareness about Make-A-Wish by engaging each of their Globe University and Minnesota School of Business campuses to create walk teams and participate in the Walk for Wishes event.
Thank you to everyone at Globe Education Network. Because of your support and generosity we are able to share the power of a wish. We look forward to our partnership for many years to come!
