Carlson School Pay It Forward Tour Information:

University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management Pay it Forward Tours are open to any incoming first year Carlson School Students. There are two programs to choose from, the Pay It Forward Tour (Plug In to Chicago) that will visit four cities over the course of five days. We will carry out a service project in each of the communities visited, work with a variety of organizations, and have several hours of tourism in each city. Through evening activities and reflection, this is an opportunity to build meaningful relationships and learn about issues affecting communities across the country and your own. As well as Plug In to the Twin Cities, a 3-day experience will stay in the Twin Cities engagin in social issues, service projects, team building, and a light-rail scavenger hunt. Each program consists of first year students and five to six upperclass Carlson School and University of Minnesota leaders with a Carlson School staff member.
