Imagine if students could gain relevant real-world experience in their field of study without having to leave campus. Agriculture students at University of Illinois are collaborating with Unilever to chart a path towards growing nutritious food at scale. Management students at University of Delaware are teaming up with eBay to devise service models for the future of eCommerce. Environmental science students at Vanderbilt are advising the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute on how to position green product labels in retail environments. All of this is happening today through ImpactEd, the bridge that connects the classroom to the real world.
