The iConsult Collaborative is a university-wide program to build experience for students through real-world client projects involving digital transformation. Student participants in iConsult form project teams representing the specialty domains of the schools and colleges of the University.
Each iConsult team works under the direction of faculty mentors and a student Project Manager who oversees the client relationship and the team’s deliverables. iConsult project teams analyze, design, recommend, and apply known information tools and approaches to help clients integrate digital technology into their organizations.
Developed originally under a Kauffman Foundation entrepreneurship grant by iSchool faculty member David Dischiave in 2008, during the 2018-19 academic year, the program engaged 80 students across the university who gained about 10,000 hours of experience while working on more than 30 client projects.
