Seth Tuler: Boston is a really great project center location because it's a dynamic city. It's changed a lot in the last 20 years and it's continuing to change. The sponsors we work with are always dealing with those changes and emerging problems, and so it gives the students a sense of how cities are growing and adapting. The Boston Project Center also offers the students the opportunity to gain experiences in federal, state, and local government, which is often new to the students, and helps them grow as they start to think about their careers and their professional life.
From a more logistical standpoint, Boston is also a great project center because it's not too far away from campus. That's great for international students who want to immerse themselves in a major U.S. city, and for other students who'd prefer to commute to a project center due to personal obligations or reasons.
