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.
