Abstract

This paper examines a decade of our institution's use of community-based non-profit organizations in the information systems capstone course. Information systems or computer science majors often have technical skills but lack an adequate understanding of organizational processes, team project experience, and the ability to integrate information technology into an organizational setting. To bridge this gap, we use group projects that leverage local nonprofit organizations. We document lessons learned from our decade of using community-based projects to provide recommendations for successfully implementing similar courses.
