Community Innovation Projects

 Student dressed in suit

Local non-profit organizations are often faced with multiple resource priorities. This can be challenging because organizations may not not always have the time or resources to allocate towards exploring new opportunities that would bring about exciting initatives to their operations. This is where YOU come in!

Learn More

  • In partnership with UTM, local non-profits identify a challenge or problem within their organization that they would like to explore changing and UTM student teams work to develop an achievable solution for that organization. 
  • You will work on real-life projects to develop an attainable solution and present your recommendations to members of the organization's Board of Directors in the spring for their consideration and possible implementation.
