Dr. Harper is an Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Management & Business at Skidmore College.  
“I am thoroughly impressed by the goodwill and the commitment of the staff and board members as they work tirelessly to contribute to the greater good by making a difference in the lives of individuals and the cycles of start-up and small minority enterprises,” said Dr. Harper. “I am also afforded the opportunity to have a voice as faith-based institutions seek to expand their reach beyond the spiritual, as they seek to provide programs and services for the underserved. It is a great privilege to conduct meaningful work in a way which facilitates the triumph of diversity and social mobility.”
