Employer: Community Health Initiative
Located in: Minneapolis, Minnesota
Degree Required: Masters
Through funding support provided by Medica, the Office for Business & Community Economic Development (OBCED) will offer the Community Health Initiative (CHI). The goal of this initiative is two-fold; to provide resources that help community-based nonprofit organizations or small businesses that work in the areas impacting public health, social services, medicine, medical technology, or to help these organizations build capacity and improve their overall performance and effectiveness in underserved or communities of color; and secondly to provide University of Minnesota students with valuable applied learning experiences by linking them to opportunities in communities that face public health disparities and other socio-economic issues.
This application is for University of Minnesota students seeking an experiential learning opportunity through a paid consulting project with a community-based nonprofit organization or small business. This Student Consulting Project will assist those nonprofits and businesses that focus directly on addressing public health issues or health disparities in underserved, socially and economically challenged communities.
Student Consulting Projects will be offered during the fall and spring semesters. The OBCED Program Manager receives applications for the program and then matches qualifying organizations with qualified student consultants. One or more students are assigned to a project, depending on the scope and type of project requested, with each student contributing 60-80 hours. Projects MUST be completed within the semester timeframe (approx. 3 1/2 months). Student consulting payments are made at the conclusion of the project. All currently enrolled Univerisity of Minnesota-Twin Cities graduate and professional students from all schools and departments are eligible and encouraged to participate.
