Step 1: Create a Project

Projects are defined as 4-12 week engagements where a university class completes clearly defined work for you/your organization. (Here are examples.) The first step to work with a university class is creating a project on the Project Portal, as follows:
  1. Create an account here.
  2. Add your project here.

The three decisions you must make to create your project are:
  1. Final Deliverable(s), which you will define and students will implement and then turn in to you at the project’s conclusion (e.g., a 20-page marketing plan, a 10-page market research report, or a software application)
  2. Start-Date (+/- one month)
  3. Project Owner, the person at your organization who can dedicate 1-2 hours per week for the duration of the project
