Spring Semester 2013
We are seeking proposals from organizations for student consultations to take place from January to May, 2013. Please use this survey format to submit your information. The deadline to complete this form is October 19, 2012.
Organizations will be evaluated on the basis of the following criteria:
• the substantive nature of the project and its potential to impact the organization. (This is not intended to be an internship, wherein the organization provides direction and the student carries out assignments, but a consultancy, wherein the student consultant conducts research, provides analysis or assessment, designs systems and/or makes recommendations based in best practices.)
• the relevance of the project to a student’s interest and expertise;
• the efficacy of the project to be completed in the hours available; and
• the organization’s capacity to support and compensate the student consultant to conduct the project.
We offer this opportunity twice a year.
