NPLI EEP Student Projects

Students of our residential executive education program are challenged to put the lessons they have learned during the program into practice through an action learning project. They are required to develop their own project idea that encompasses a real world problem in need of a better solution.  Collaborating in a team of 5-8 members, cross-sector and cross-agency, the team works together during the time between the opening and concluding program sessions to put forth a well-researched solution.
