In May and June (S1), C4 debuted C4 Sprint Summer 3.0, which is a three-layered experiential learning space for students at all levels and all Faculties. There were two Sprint classrooms to choose from: Mondays and Wednesdays 12:30-3:30 pm or 5:30-8:30 pm.
Our application portal for C4 Sprint Summer 2023 is now open!
C4 Sprint 3.0 (May to June)
Summer 1: Mondays and Wednesdays, In Person
Option A: 12:30-3:30pm
Option B: 5:30-8:30pm
For All Years and All Faculties:
C4 Sprint 3.0 combines three streams of C4: 1) Primer (for 1st/2nd year students), 2) Launchpad (for 2nd/3rd year students), and 3) Management (for graduating students)—into one multi-layered classroom. The whole class works collaboratively and closely over a short and intensive term to rapidly develop viable solutions for a large, complex, social-impact challenge directly linked to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
C4 Primer 3.0 (First/Second-Year):
First- and second-year undergraduates who are new to C4 work intensively over one term on one big, complex, multi-disciplinary project, pitched by a single partner. Students are broken up into sub-teams and then managed by C4 alumni who are registered in the C4 Management program. Primer students focus primarily on core skills for working in these complex project spaces.
C4 Launchpad 3.0 (Second/Third-Year):
Second- and third-year undergraduate students, who are either new to C4 or have previously taken C4 Primer, work intensively over a semester on one big, complex, multi-disciplinary project, pitched by a single partner. Students are broken up into sub-teams and then managed by C4 alumni who are registered in the C4 Management program. This experience is intended to offer students an opportunity to acquire insights into convergent, divergent, and complementary modes of research – design and practice, which is highly valued in a number of fields.
C4 Management 3.0 (Fourth and Fifth-Year):
C4 Management is a high-impact finishing program for C4 alumni. Students are given the opportunity to lead teams created from a group of undergraduates who are registered in C4 Launchpad and Primer. Together they will work intensively over a semester on one large, complex multi-disciplinary project, pitched by a single partner.
