The Society for Advancement of Management (SMA), a professional organization of the Clayton State University School of Business, recently sponsored a “Dress for Success” campaign.
The effort came about because many local teachers, through contact with the Business and Information System Advisory Council of the Clayton County School system, stated that their students to do not have the funds to purchase a business suit or other appropriate clothing accessories for job interviews.
The Dress for Success campaign at Clayton State ran through the month of April, with SAM requesting new or gently worn suits for men or women, accessories for professional dress gift cards, and cash donations from Clayton State faculty, staff and students.
Interim Dean of Business Dr. Diane Prince and SAM faculty advisors Drs. Michael Deis and Dr. Reza Kheirandish report that the School of Business successfully donated more than 50 suits/ensembles and accessories to the Clayton County Schools. The donation was arranged by Associate Professor of Finance Dr. Chen-Miao Lin.
A unit of the University System of Georgia, Clayton State University is an outstanding comprehensive metropolitan university located 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.
