Website Creation

Student will take an existing website design and implement it to build your website using whatever website platform you provide.

Video Editing

Literature Review

Engage a student to conduct a review of existing literature on a topic that's relevant to you or your organization's work.

Annotated Bibliography

There are never enough hours in the day to read, let alone to create your reading list. A student can help you identify the books that are most relevant to you.

Survey Design

Need to get a survey out, but don't have time to pull it together? A Swarthmore student or recent grad can do the research and design to get you the data you need.

Grant Writing

Engage a student in helping to research available grants and write an initial draft of the grant application.

Social Media Calendar

Engage a student in creating a social media content calendar. The posts should have a good mix of thought leadership, informational, and promotional content (which we will provide).

Diversity Best Practices

Diversity and inclusion are essential now more than ever. Have a student develop a diversity best practices manual for your organization.
