What kind of culminating projects do students work on? 

Each semester multidisciplinary teams of UNVS 101 students use the knowledge and skills they gain during the course to address a challenge for their culminating consulting project.  Employer partners from a variety of sectors such as healthcare, finance, hightech and the nonprofit sector have posed challenges that they themselves are trying to solve. Students present their findings and pitch their proposals to representatives of the partner organization.

  • LinkedIn: How might LinkedIn help companies hire people that represent all walks of life, who bring different experiences, perspectives, and points of view to the company?

  • Yahoo: How might we grow users and usage of Yahoo Mail?
