When Corinne O’Connell, Associate Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia (HFHP), reached out to Dr. TL Hill, Associate Professor of Strategic Management and Managing Director of Fox Management Consulting at Temple’s Fox School of Business in 2010, she did not expect a casual one-off meeting about the state of her business to morph into a five-year partnership that would catapult HFHP to new heights.
In the most recent engagement between the two organizations, Fox MBA candidates participating in the Fox Board Fellows program developed a comprehensive procurement strategy and process for ReStore, HFHP’s discount home improvement store. The strategy included a training process and guides for staff and board members to use to assist with ReStore’s procurement process. Fox Board Fellows, a program operated by Temple’s Fox School of Business, places MBA candidates on nonprofit boards, in which they serve as active and engaged visiting members. Fellows contribute a professional quality, strategic project to their partner nonprofits as part of a credit bearing, elective course in Nonprofit Governance.
