Industry Partners

We connect colleges and universities with corporate partners to expand experiential learning opportunities for students.

A liaison for higher ed and corporate partners

Bridging education and industry, PeopleGrove helps universities by recruiting companies to create High-Impact Practices (HIPs) with faculty oversight. These corporate-sponsored, course-embedded, project-based learning opportunities give students, regardless of modality, career experience relevant to their degrees. 

Expand Experiential Learning

Offering HIPs Guidance

Internships, project-based learning opportunities, and other High-Impact Practices where a student learns by experience, through working on a real world project, are highly beneficial. For a university to offer these experiential learning opportunities, it often requires collaboration with a corporate partner – especially to ensure they’re designed and executed as true HIPs for students.

Relationship Management

Scale Experiential Learning

PeopleGrove supports faculty as they deliver and oversee HIPs and experiential learning opportunities in the classroom. By managing the corporate relationship on a university’s behalf and actively recruiting industry partners, PeopleGrove makes it easier for institutions to bring more HIPs opportunities to courses and certificate programs.

Connecting Company Projects & University Classes

As the nation’s leading solution in HIPs, developed alongside preeminent researchers, we understand for experiential learning to have the greatest impact, student assessment needs to take place and schools need to be able to analyze its effectiveness. 


We work with both parties to establish curriculum connections – helping universities set learning objectives for experiential learning and matching a school’s available courses to company projects.

Measurable Assessment

We guide companies to ensure they’re creating Student Projects where student outcomes can be tracked, measured, and assessed.
