Student-Led, Faculty-Guided Projects provide assistance to Michigan communities in completing local and regional development initiatives. These projects provide data analysis and technical assistance to communities that may not have the financial resources or time to complete projects without assistance. These projects do more than just help communities; they also build student confidence and provide students with the tools necessary to be successful later in their careers. But, most importantly, these projects create jobs, build a better quality of place, and build vibrant communities.
