Request Help From Students

Each semester, student teams at both the undergraduate and graduate levels engage with organizations in our community.  Organizations benefit from fresh thinking and new ideas while students get to apply the skills they’ve learned in a real-world environment. 

Class plans are usually set a semester in advance, so it is important to engage with the lead faculty member well in advance of when you need assistance.  Here is the schedule of engagements and who to contact:
