The Hurt Hub and the Psychology Department at Davidson College have formed a partnership to provide 12-week organizational development consulting engagements for local businesses seeking to drive innovation and positive change in their organizations. Under the guidance of Dr. John Kello, Professor Emeritus of Psychology at Davidson and consultant for 50 years, and Liz Brigham, W. Spencer Mitchem Director of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the Hurt Hub, four skilled Davidson Psychology majors form a management consulting team responsible for conducting primary and background research, analyzing findings, and delivering recommendations aligned to client needs and the project scope. Students receive academic credit for their work and a high-impact experiential learning opportunity seldom seen at the undergraduate level. Clients receive fresh perspectives and research-driven recommendations at an affordable cost, and an opportunity to develop a relationship with talented students for future recruiting.
