Come to us with a thorny or complex business problem, and we’ll put our best minds to work on it.

UC Forward is a teaching and learning initiative that pairs students and faculty from diverse disciplines with collaborators and experts from outside the university to create innovative and transformative answers to pressing and complex real-world challenges.

You gain visibility, enthusiasm, and innovative solutions to real problems as students produce and present tangible deliverables that benefit you.

Meanwhile, students learn vital techniques in innovation, collaboration, and tapping their creativity to solve problems.

UC Forward works with for-profit companies, not-for-profit organizations, schools, start-ups, and everything in between. If you have an interesting pitch or idea, we’d love to hear about it.

See examples of recent UC Forward projects.

Contact UC Forward Director Frank Russell to learn how we can work with you.
