Expanding Project Excellence

The Center for Project Excellence applies student power to help area businesses solve complex problems. The Center concentrates on management information systems and operations analysis projects while supporting undergraduate and faculty research. It offers a technical library of resources (print and online), as well as space, technology, and mentoring for computer and video recording for oral presentations and role-playing. The Center also manages a speakers series, bringing in practitioners to assist in honing students' project and professional skills.

The center is led by Stephen Hall, an MIS and operations management faculty member. Hall's background includes more than 30 years of experience in business as an executive and chief information officer for several local and global companies.

A goal for the center is to expand its offerings to include other business departments, such as marketing and accounting, and eventually develop multi-disciplinary teams from other areas of the University to assist companies and provide learning experiences for students.
