Abstract

To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the Worcester Community Project Center (WCPC), we reflected and documented the history and impact of the WCPC on the Worcester community, and developed recommendations for future growth of the project center. Our team conducted interviews and surveys with both WCPC alumni and past sponsors to collect testimonials. The collected testimonials were integrated into the interactive webpage we created, displaying history and impact of the WCPC. In order to develop recommendations for future growth of the WCPC, our team learned what aspects of the on-campus IQPs attract students. Based on collected responses from on-campus IQP students, we defined strengths and weaknesses of the WCPC and considered those for developing the recommendations.
