The center serves a dual role to foster the creation of knowledge through research and to disseminate this knowledge through education. Education programs envisioned by the center include masters level project courses, executive education programs, and, longer term, curriculum development for various programs across the university that may be enhanced by work associated with the center’s overall mission.
Education Program Funding
Funding for education programs may be provided through Course Project Grants and/or Education Grants. Course project grants are meant to support teams of faculty and students to address real problems proposed by PNC that are identified by the operating committee, whereas education grants are specifically meant to advance the educational mission of the center.
