Access Committees are designed to give participants more say in planning events and activities throughout the year. Committees are chaired by Access alumni, and generally meet once per month (at the discretion of the Chair) throughout the entire eight month program. 

Current Committees:

Skills Development Workshops Committee

  • Plans (at least) two of the Access Program’s student workshops.
  • Identifies topics, locates and secures speakers, builds agenda, schedules times and locations.
Case Competition Committee
  • Works with a local organization to solve a problem through a case-competition event.
  • Works with the not-for-profit to understand their issue, and then organizes all the logistical details of the event, including structure, location, timing, and participant recruitment.
  • Promotes the event to Access students and peers.
Technology and Innovation Committee
  • Be a place to share ideas, resources amongst each other
  • Work together to deliver one or more events with a focus on entrepreneurship and innovation.
