Fogelman’s Know Good — Do Good — Thrive initiative was conceived by Harry Smith,
Executive-in-Residence at the Fogelman College of Business & Economics. The initiative
includes lectures delivered to students, faculty and staff on the Know Good – Do Good
– Thrive concept: If a professional does the right thing on a continual basis, he
or she will be successful.
The program, led by Smith, is presented through in-class lectures. As a corporate
chairman, Smith managed more than 1,000 employees and $150 million in revenue and
became successful promoting and practicing the ideology of the program. The Know Good
– Do Good – Thrive in-class presentations aim to communicate this message to graduating
seniors. By attending the sessions, students learn how to put these principles in
practice to become successful in the business community.

The Know Good - Do Go - Thrive series is part of The Complete Professional Program offered by the Avron B. Fogelman Professional Development Center. Students who successfully
complete at least four of the training requirements can earn a professional development
certificate which is helpful as they seek career and internship opportunities.
