  • Developed a communications strategy and procedural recommendations for expansion of the car sharing industry to better serve elderly and disabled communities.

“I don’t know if I’ll ever go into the non-profit sector but this summer confirmed that the type of career I have I want to be varied. I don’t want to just be sitting at a desk all day but I want to be out doing things and out talking to people. Making people collaborate and advancing the organizations goals. The program was great. It was a packed summer, but an awesome one, and I learned a lot.”

“Every year we are impressed by the quality of the ILR students we receive. Mike is certainly no exception and has been a tremendous help in all aspects of our operation.”

Mike Galligano,

Executive Director of Buffalo CarShare
