Community-focused capstone

Graziadio has a long-standing tradition of producing values-centered leaders driven by personal integrity, compassion, and holistic thinking. The community-focused Education-to-Community capstone project is an integral part of that tradition. Learners are immersed in a real-world challenge that nonprofits and organizations in California are facing. Instead of writing a thesis, learners get hands-on, faculty-led experience working in teams, applying knowledge and consulting for organizations, and providing recommendations in these areas:

  • Sustainable: organizational structure and design
  • Talent: management
  • Team: building
  • Leadership: development, and
  • Leading: effective change

Graziadio values and seeks diverse and driven individuals who wish to sharpen their interpersonal and core leadership skills to better improve their organization and the world around them.
