World Learning is partnering with Sodexo for management of our food, custodial and facilities services. I understand that there were concerns raised about Sodexo several years ago, and I believe Sodexo has moved in very positive ways on a number of fronts as an organization to address concerns. As important as that is, I also gauge the success of this partnership by what we are experiencing on campus. John Benouski, his staff and other Sodexo employees have worked to reach out and be responsive to our community; I have found working with all of them to be a productive, professional experience.
