Community-Based Projects are distinguished through an interaction, motivation, and/or impact that involve a community beyond the university.
We define a community-based project as a project with one or more of the following characteristics:
- It is defined by the community.
- It is constrained by the community.
- It provides a clear social benefit.
- It involves the community through feedback and prototype evaluation.
- It creates a new community through the solution of a problem.
