Dr. Jennifer Pazour wins NSF Grant

Dr. Jennifer Pazour

Dr. Jennifer Pazour, Associate Professor in the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department, has received a National Science Foundation (NSF) Future of Work grant entitled "Mobilizing Nonprofit Resources and Talents with a Community Tool for Purpose-Driven Work."  Dr. Pazour shares this award with her collaborators at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.  The project is iteratively designing, assessing, and refining a community tool that provides a new way for nonprofits to obtain the necessary resources and talents to support their purpose-driven needs.  This platform can increase the collective impact of small-to-medium nonprofit organizations that provide critical social and human services, particularly for historically marginalized and low-income communities.
