Through Ivey’s Community Consulting Project (CCP), HBA students have had a positive impact on many non-profit organizations and the communities they serve.

The CCP is a six-week consulting venture that gives HBAs the opportunity to tackle critical problems affecting non-profit organizations in the London community, including The Arthritis Society and United Way London & Middlesex, pro bono.

“The Ivey HBA students have been fantastic to work with. I have been so impressed by their professionalism, how quickly they jumped on board with this project, and how quickly they understood the root meanings in what we were asking for,” said Carolyn Botten, Community Engagement Specialist of United Way London & Middlesex.

Ishaan Kapur, HBA Candidate ’18, has gained valuable skills and knowledge from his involvement in the program.

“I joined the Ivey Community Consulting Project because it allows you to take what you learned inside the classroom and apply it to a real life scenario, while at the same time giving back to your community,” he said.
