Marcus Franklin

My team aided a locally-based environmental nonprofit, Climate Changers, in developing its identity and path as an organization. We advised on a number of strategic priorities including organizational development, fundraising, communication, and network building.

One aspect of the Capstone that I found particularly transformative was bridging academic theory and practical insight. You need to be able to think strategically using a variety of theoretical lenses, to solve complex and often ambiguous problems. Capstone provided me with a framework for approaching these challenges and executing solutions within complex and dynamic environments.
