​During the Spring semester, graduate project management students, led by Amy Paros, assistant professor of management, contributed more than 2,185 hours of project planning that supported usable real-world solutions for business and organizational initiatives within the community.

About half of the work done by the students benefited the local community, while the rest reached as far away as Canada, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.

The students helped plan the execution of new initiatives, including:

  • Website, podcasts and app development

  • Relocations, expansions, renovations and new builds

  • Streamlined work processes and hiring campaigns

  • Marketing plans, parking plans and business plans

Additionally, nonprofit organizations were also supported by the business students. Their work directly helped nonprofits plan to hire summer interns, revitalize websites, connect and support minority populations and launch new services. These students applied their classroom learning and delivered impactful project plans to 33 businesses and organizations that allowed for focused project objectives, defined execution plans, robust budgeting and proactive risk reduction.

Paros' students this past semester were: Nicole Bruder, Claire Butler, Brandon Carroll, Pedro Cesa, Oliver Chau, James Cohen, Andrew D'Autilio, Ellsworth Evarts IV, Vincent Michael Gazzillo, Brendan Geary, Allia Graham, Stephen Halvatzis, Ryan Hilton, Kelsey Irons, Madison Isherwood, Brendan Jelley, Jean-Na Koo, Tessa Lagodich, Nigel Margetson, John Marsh, Michayla McGill, Griffin Mendel, Matthew Morales, Connor Odell, Giuseppe Piscitelli, Joseph Ragno, Jonathan Rosenblum, Ryan Silvar, Dylan St. Cyr, Gregory Thisse, Eric Vandermeer, Christine Vilarino, Benjamin Weber and Zara Zeigerman.
