Spring Taylor program kicks off with record numbers

Students eager to help local St. Louis nonprofits gathered in the Active Learning Lab on Thursday night to inaugurate the spring session of the Taylor Community Consulting Program. The program, an initiative of the Center for Experiential Learning, drew students from diverse academic backgrounds, including BSBA, MBA, engineering, and law students.

Each group of 5-6 students will work directly with a specific organization on a project over the course of the semester. Projects range from a date benchmarking project for Catholic Charities to an industry analysis for the Nonprofit Resource Center.

Mark Soczek, Director of the Taylor Program, was extremely excited to announce a record number of applicants both from non-profits and students hoping to participate in the program. Some organizations, such as City Academy, have been part of the Taylor Program before while many others, like the Human Rights Campaign, are newcomers who have been drawn by the reputation of the program. Soczek commented that he cannot wait to see the impactful deliverables that will come from the student consulting teams.
