Two hundred and fifty students, industry experts, entrepreneurs, professors and social value creators came together at Ronald Reagan Building in Washington today for the grand launch of Center for Social Value Creation (csvc) at Robert H. Smith School of Business.

Dean Anand introduced the center with a comment that “In the business school we have a responsibility to create responsible leaders”. Although he commented the school is a little behind in starting the center, he promptly recognized that the students and faculty are already creating social value by many means -Especially via involvement with Net Impact, Smith School Energy Club, CIBER, Green, sustainable and social corporate responsibility clubs and more.

Today’s forum on leadership for a better world will be covered by three current University of Maryland students here on 3p, check back for updates throughout the day.

    Social value creators?
    I am sorry, but the last value created on humanity was lost about two and a half milleniuns ago.
    Not even Jesus has been able to create, on society, social midia, love as a value.
    Sorry by the comment, but I believe the expression is way over mentionned.
    I support, though, the idea of putting those special people, the ones qualified for the title of value creators, to work. Hard. It is not easy to change values.
