On December 2, 2011, Baxter hosted 120 Muchin College Preparatory Scholars at the company's corporate headquarters in Deerfield for an in-depth look at how individual interests pair with skills to translate into strong careers. Twenty professionals from Finance, Marketing, Engineering, Product Management, Human Resources, Communications, Research & Development and more shared their experiences, challenges and triumphs in shaping their lives. The volunteers provided guidance, advice and an interactive exercise to determine how to align personal interests with meaningful careers to the students. In 2009, Baxter's support helped open the doors to Muchin College Preparatory High School, a new charter high school located in Chicago's downtown business district. The school serves 500 students from more than 45 zip codes throughout the city and features many educational innovations, including an extended school day and year, smaller classes, more professional development for teachers and a rigorous focus on college.
