In support of a major curriculum association initiative adopted by a large Midwestern business college, faculty adopted a hands-on community service-based project in an undergraduate business project management course. The project was developed in order to incorporate the specific High-Impact Educational Practice (HIP) of service or community-based learning, as defined by the Liberal Education and America’s Promise (LEAP) initiative. This research describes (1) how the project management faculty revised the course to incorporate service and community-based learning, (2) related student activities, (3) preliminary results, and (4) next steps.
