Bruce – A Special Kind of Leader
Bruce Levenson, the former owner of the Atlanta Hawks, is no ordinary leader. In fact, his recently begun Do Good Institute is a testimony to this fact. This special philanthropist, entrepreneur and former NBA team owner knows the importance of giving back to the community and eventually to the world at large, a fact which speaks in action alone louder than it does through words. Mr. Levenson’s charitable actions will never be forgotten as such throughout his lifetime nor will his wonderful spirit. Mr. Bruce Levenson resides with his wife, Karen Levenson, in Washington D.C.
A Change in Higher Education
According to ESPN, since Mr. Levenson sold his ownership of the Atlanta Hawks in 2014, he immediately began to work with non-profit organizations, gradually giving birth to the University of Maryland’s Do Good Institute. He seeks to make the world of higher education a possibility for all by simply involving the University’s current undergraduate students in volunteer work and regular philanthropic activism. The program has only been a rapidly-growing success since its initiation, and the hope is that people will never see higher education through the same eyes ever again. Let us hope.

The program intends to accomplish two missions. The first is to make the University of Maryland campus one in which every faculty, staff, current student and alumni learn to practice the healthy habit of giving back to the community—and of truly doing good to all neighbors—for a lifetime. The second is to rise a new generation of leaders in the non-profit sector, bold men and women who will both make a lasting difference in their surrounding communities and likewise teach others to do the same in the process. This 21st-century model is well-received.
