I sat down recently with Howard Schultz, Chairman, President and CEO of Starbucks, to talk about the fracturing of the American Dream. Nearly half of Americans who begin college don’t finish. Much of this is the result of escalating costs and life/work balance.
70% of Starbucks’ US employees are students or aspiring students, and Starbucks is stepping up to the plate to help them get a degree through the College Achievement Plan.
What a shining example of what bold and ‘think different’ corporate philanthropy can be.
