In addition to distinguished faculty and accomplished professionals, our highly efficient workforce includes an elite group of motivated undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students who are dedicated to delivering practical solutions for government entities, businesses and NGOs. We convene and organize partnerships for and between public and private entities for projects that require cooperative effort from multiple stakeholders.
