The mission of the Blackburn College student-managed work program is to meet the labor needs of the campus community, and to help better prepare students for a successful transition to life, work, and career after college by:
- Involving students to the maximum extent feasible in the provision of all goods and services needed and/or provided by the college.
- Reducing the cost of a four-year, private college education through student “self-help”.
- Providing “hands-on” work, service and leadership learning opportunities in addition to the classroom.
- Providing an added dimension of community involvement, and student character development emphasizing a strong work ethic, responsibility and accountability.
