APPENDIX A ADMINISTRATION/DEPARTMENT CHAIR/STUDENT REVIEWS DIRECT OBSERVATIONS Observations from two distinguished Babson members of the Faculty and Administration: Observations by Dr. Len Schlesinger, Babson College, President “Babson College has had the benefit of Michael Caslin’s energy and counsel as an adjunct faculty member for years and I have personally witnessed his impact on students in teaching the Social Entrepreneurship course. He has served a valuable advisor to many before the creation of
  6. 6. MICHAEL J. CASLIN, III 691 Hurley Avenue, Hurley, NY 12443 212-444-2071 / mike@gcsen.com 6 the Lewis Institute and campus wide initiative. As a National Board Member for NFTE, I can appreciate the magnitude of the challenges he faced over 20 years as the organization’s CEO…the reputational capital that was built far exceeded the formal resources they had available to them. At this stage of his life Michael wants to make the transition to a more full time academic career and the MBA is the first step in the process. I enthusiastically support his plan and do believe he is taking the appropriate steps to realize his aspirations and I have little doubt that he will be an important member of his Fast Track cohort.”  Oral Communication Skills - “Excellent”- Schlesinger, Brush  Ability to Work with Others - “Excellent”- Schlesinger, Brush  Initiative- “Excellent” - Schlesinger, Brush  Maturity- “Excellent” - Schlesinger, Brush  Creativity- “Excellent” - Schlesinger, Brush  Problem Solving Skills- “Excellent”- Dr. Candy Brush Observations by Dr. Candy Brush, Babson College, Department Chair, Blank Center for Entrepreneurship- Endorsement- “I first met Mike Caslin when I joined Babson College as Division Chair. He had been an adjunct faculty member teaching social entrepreneurship and I became his direct supervisor and have known him for 6 years. His strengths are personal interaction, communication, sales and marketing and non-profit/foundation work including NFTE and knows the landscape of social entrepreneurship very well. He has built connections, knows how to do research, collect data and importantly is committed to social mission ventures and non-profits. He has taught graduate and undergraduate courses and I observed his teaching on several occasions and there is no question that he engages students in rich discussion and is an enthusiastic presenter…Mike’s passion, expertise and knowledge of social ventures/non-profit would be a terrific addition to the Fast Track Program and while he is more experienced and a mature candidate, I know he is eager to learn. He would likely be a leader for his cohort and embrace this role.  Written Communication Skills- “Good” – Dr. Len Schlesinger  Quantitative Skills- “Good”- Dr. Candy Brush  Decision-making Skills- “Good”- Dr. Candy Brush APPENDIX B TEACHING MOTIVATION AND PHILOSOPHY I love teaching. Why? It is an incredible gift and honor to see first-hand the power of conceiving, believing and achieving occur within my students during the length of an academic semester and beyond. Reading their qualitative feedback surveys after each semester further reinforces that I’ve contributed to their growth process. I have pursued teaching as a second stage career path. During my first stage career I built a number of small businesses and non-profits. This in turn led to my being sought out for strategic advisory services then CEO/Co-Founder role in a start-up non-profit- NFTE- Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship- that would go on to scale globally, work with
  7. 7. MICHAEL J. CASLIN, III 691 Hurley Avenue, Hurley, NY 12443 212-444-2071 / mike@gcsen.com 7 500,000 students and be case studied twice by Harvard Business School. The popularity of these case studies in turn created a demand for my lecturing at Columbia, Dartmouth, Duke, Harvard- Business and Kennedy Schools and Stanford Universities. From this experience, I was then invited to be a “practitioner-academic” at Babson College and CUNY-BARUCH working with both graduate and undergraduate students. Since 1988, I have been able to teach entrepreneurship to students ranging in age from 15 to 50 years around the world. have had the blessing of lecturing teaching and working with a wide range of from the lowest income to the most prestigious and credentialed graduate school students, from the next generation scions of the world’s wealthiest business families to the multi- generation impoverished on many continents. From those who are physically challenge, incarcerated or learning disadvantaged to the most gifted and resourced. I have seen in the eyes of them all a desire to learn, dream, to change their lives for the better and to change the world for the better. Given the state of our very needy world, it is only through education that we can help support more flames of knowledge that will light up the darkness. This is why I must teach. I believe knowledge with wisdom (applied knowledge) is power and as a teacher I have the right and the duty to share knowledge and the accumulated wisdom of insights gained from my own career path. I always say, “I don’t have answers just perspective and that each student must come to their own answers in life.” I believe that as an educator I am walking Joseph Campbell’s, “The Thousand Faces of A Hero”. This “hero path” is with my students. We are on a shared journey beginning in the classroom which goes beyond the semester – and we grow together. Together we chose to depart from the comfortable, gain enlightenment through struggle and most importantly we commit to “the return” to teach others (our colleagues, our fellow students, our friends and families) what we have learned. From all the Babson and Baruch classes I have taught over the years I have now served as a mentor to 93 students. I believe that educators have a noble duty to find new truths and affirm old ones based on rigorous research, writing, debate and presentations. We have a noble duty to inspire, challenge and nurture our students in and beyond the classroom. In my role as a teacher I am enabled to see the potential that lies within my students and am thrilled to help it emerge. It is my sacred duty to help my students see and tap into their natural or God-given potential as well. I believe that education is a great individual liberator, societal equalizer and
  8. 8. MICHAEL J. CASLIN, III 691 Hurley Avenue, Hurley, NY 12443 212-444-2071 / mike@gcsen.com 8 nation builder. And I believe that social entrepreneurship education, entrepreneurship that seeks to transform society through triple bottom line oriented efforts (by intentionally linking people, profit and planet), is one of the most pragmatic, radical and transformative non- coercive forces for good that exists on our planet today.
