Consultants for the Public Good

Consultants for the Public Good connects NYIT students, faculty, staff, and alumni with non-profit organizations for community-based volunteer opportunities.

Students, Faculty, Staff, and Alumni

Consultants for the Public Good is designed to foster people skills essential to the workplace, including cross-cultural competency, social intelligence, as well as novel and adaptive thinking:

  • Students enjoy Consultants for the Public Good because it offers them a unique chance to build a professional portfolio early on.
  • International students can put their skills into action without any type of work authorization.
  • Faculty and staff get the chance to interact with students and colleagues outside of their classrooms or offices through community-based research and project-based learning.
  • Alumni can grow their off-campus networks while staying connected to NYIT.

Each consultancy team consists of any number of NYIT students, faculty, and staff, and is headed by a lead consultant who serves as the liaison with the community partner. Both sides are continually supported by NYIT experiential education staff. Previous projects have included website development, business plan writing, social media strategy development, event planning, database creation, and much more.
