Projects for the Public Good
What are Projects for the Public Good?
The College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts focuses on the link between the classroom and careers in our community. Projects for the Public Good extends that thinking and illustrates how the research and creative endeavors of our faculty, students, and alumni directly impacts the lives of those who live and work in the community.
Many faculty in the college actively pursue opportunities to work with and in the community, using it as a learning laboratory. The college's commitment to applied research involves students in meaningful research and creative activity. Projects for the Public Good are examples of opportunities that connect the expertise of the college to the needs of the community.
