As an active participant of the Summit  you will find a variety of resources from organizing your initial planning teams and process, to the information you need to launch and evolve your capstone programs. Our Capstone Summit fosters a peer-to-peer exchange of ideas and resources, based on the wonderfully successful and engaging Un-conference model.
