Community Partner-proposal process
How can SMU students help your community organization? Submit a pre-designed Individual Pathway experience.
Recognized Engage Dallas community partners may propose pre-designed individual pathways for SMU students to consider. Think of Individual Pathways as a large project, but not as time-consuming as a semester-long internship. Your pre-designed individual pathways are special projects or large-scale task combining the student's skills and your community organization's needs. Examples include graphic designer, office assistant, data manager. These are short-term projects.
Community Partners submit the pre-designed individual pathway. The more details you provide in your proposal helps Engage Dallas recruit the correctly-trained and best-suited student to serve with your organization.
After an administrative review, which could take 1 - 2 business weeks, Engage Dallas will push marketing out to students who will contact you directly expressing their interest.
