PhD Community Initiative Project
Wednesday, March 22nd @ 5:00 PM - 7:00 PMFree
Listen to the final reports from our doctoral students who have been working on 5 community projects.
The PhD-Community Initiative brought together PhD students from multiple disciplines to form teams that engaged with local community organizations. These organizations identified an issue, challenge or goal that could benefit from a fresh, interdisciplinary, analytical approach to help them move forward in a positive way.
Students gained a valuable, collaborative learning experience as they applied and translated their knowledge and skills beyond their direct area of focus and community partners benefited from the experience as they gain thoughtful, creative and informed strategies that can benefit their organization. Alumni played an important role in guiding and mentoring each student team.
