What is Pitch Day?

Pitch Day is an annual event where both off and on-campus partners pitch their real-world challenges to C4 students who want to make a social impact. Our inaugural Pitch Day drew more than 300 curious community partners, students, professors, and staff members to the library's Collaboratory.

2019 Pitch Day Projects

There were a total of 41 projects pitched by off and on-campus partners in 2019's Pitch Day. These projects spanned from wastewater recycling to a robotic arm technology and a youth well-being toolkit.

Knowledge Domains

The projects that were pitched during Pitch Day 2019 were categorized into nine different knowledge domains. The knowledge domains helped students identify projects they were interested in, without reducing them to disciplines.

Moments from Pitch Day 2019

I think C4 is a great model for student engagement and learning. The course creates a positive space for interdisciplinary cooperation, knowledge translation, and innovation.
