Academic Community Impact Program

Thomas Edison State University’s new Academic Community Impact Program is a first-of-its-kind and innovative project-based initiative that bridges the gap between online education and real-life workplace experience while affording adult students with the opportunity to complete a hands-on project that directly meets the vital needs of community-based non-profit organizations. Thanks to generous funding from a Provident Bank Foundation Signature Grant award, the University will work with non-profits to develop a needs assessment and unique projects that organizations need help with. These projects can range from website redesigns, strategic outreach enhancements, underserved population research, and much more. At the end of each project, participating non-profits will have an important strategic and critical need of theirs met.

The adult students of Thomas Edison State University will be working with participating non-profits and engaging in these projects directly with a mentor who will provide the academic expertise to successfully guide students in the projects in which they are engaged. Following the successful completion of their projects, students will have a portfolio and a tangible project that they can share with future employers and use as a tool for their career growth.

Thomas Edison State University’s new Academic Community Impact Program will greatly strengthen the bonds that tie communities, people, non-profit organizations, and institutions of higher education together.
