Learn about opportunities to benefit from CU-Denver Public Affairs grad student capstone Projects.
Join us to learn from a CU-Denver representative about how nonprofit organizations can benefit from the talent of local Master of Public Affairs graduate students through volunteer-based capstone projects. The Advanced Seminar in Public Policy and Management, also known as the capstone course, is designed to provide students with the opportunity to integrate and synthesize what they have learned during the entire MPA course of study. Students act as a consultant, addressing a need within a community organization, and work in tandem with faculty mentors to address a specific research, policy or management issue. Projects take many different forms including business plans, marketing plans, surveys and interviews, salary studies, etc. The finished “product” is completed with input from the client over a period of 4 – 6 months. No payment or fee is required for organizations to request a capstone student. Organizations benefit from the analysis and expertise of students and their faculty mentors while students gain experience with real-life policy issues.
