Honors College students are building a better community through local partnerships.

Our partnerships use student research and creativity to help local nonprofit organizations and businesses face challenges and solve problems. Put teams of our talented students to work to make your organization's project a reality. Collaborations should:

  • Focus on long-term projects or challenges rather than everyday operational tasks.
  • Involve a research or creative component.
  • Have the support of at least one employee from the business or organization. That person will work with the student team from start to finish (September-May).
  • Produce a product or solution that's valuable both to the student team and the corporate partner.

We've worked with Leadership Fairfax, a nonprofit organization that works to engage participants to become agents of positive change in Fairfax County and the Northern Virginia region. They've connected us with a number of partners, including:
