A partnership with MEDA, LMD and USM

Highlighting Economic Development and Higher Education in Maryland

FOR MEDA & LEADERSHIP MARYLAND MEMBERS ONLY

Join us for the third installment in a series of conversations that highlight the positive impact of the partnership that exists in Maryland between our leaders in economic development and higher education. Throughout the nine counties of the Eastern Shore, robust partnerships between businesses, local governments, and our colleges and universities are yielding many positive results. Salisbury University and its Franklin P. Perdue School of Business are playing a vital role by supporting business and industry in the region. The Perdue School’s Business, Economic, and Community Outreach Network (BEACON), its Small Business Development Center (SBDC), its Innovation Lab, its Entrepreneurship and Economic Development Hub, as well as other outreach programs from the University’s other schools and colleges continue to be active agents in the region’s economic growth. Join us as we highlight the value of these partnerships on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and welcome to Maryland Dr. Charles (Chuck) Wight, the newest President of Salisbury University.
