Client Partners

Our greatest lessons come from the University of Life – getting our hands dirty, interacting with people in real situations, traveling, and learning on the spot.

The Experiential Learning Collaborative (ELC) develops relationships with leaders of corporations, entrepreneurial ventures, government agencies, and non-profit organizations. The ELC serves their needs as an outsourced research-and-development department, capable of conducting sizable forward-looking projects. This capability enables client-partners to benefit from the expertise of UConn faculty and students:

  • Conduct an in-depth market research
  • Gain energetic input in research and new product development
  • Increase productivity
  • Identify and manage financial risks
  • Reduce costs of doing business

The directions and objectives of each project are different. What remains constant is the role of our client-partners who become active participants of an exciting project development environment with engaging communications with and timely inputs from the student teams.

The ELC is committed to addressing long- and short-term needs of client-partners while providing the continuity of student experiential learning. The projects are structurally divided into sequential phases covering different key elements of the project over time. Completing each project, the ELC strives to create value substantially exceeding any fees received from client-partners.
