How Valuable Are Capstone Projects for Community Organizations? Lessons from a Program Assessment

“The paper finds that supervisor engagement, project location, and faculty involvement were significant factors in determining whether projects were beneficial to host organizations. The findings indicate that closer relationships among the three primary participants in capstone projects (student, supervisor, and instructor) will lead to more successful capstones for partner organizations.” (p.61) “Supervisors who were the most engaged in the capstone process received completed projects that were the most satisfactory.” (p.80)
