Community GAP Program

A hands-on, real-world program delivering two-way value for students and client organizations

What is GAP?

GAP is an innovative program in which multi-disciplinary teams of students work side-by-side with leading organizations on real-world issues that matter. Guided by faculty coaches and outside experts, participants produce practical outcomes for their clients. This program bridges the GAP between what students learn in the classroom and what they need in the real world.
