Project Proposal Form

BU’s Cross-College Challenge (XCC) is a unique opportunity for faculty, staff, entrepreneurs, non-profits, and individuals to engage with an interdisciplinary team of undergraduate students on a complex real-world problem or an enduring human question. Students rely on robust experiences to apply theoretical knowledge to practical problems while honing collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking skills. Conversely, community partners benefit from new and diverse perspectives on their proposed project and a deliverable (report, prototype, etc) as the product of a rigorous academic process.
