CFL Consulting

Our motto captures the essence of what we do: outstanding value for clients, invaluable experience for students.

To accomplish this, we create interdisciplinary student teams led by an experienced practitioner coach in solving real world problems for a wide variety of clients. The experiential learning and mentoring helps students to develop their critical-thinking, problem-solving and team-building skills.

Want to solve real-world problems? This is experiential learning at its best. You’ll have the opportunity to work alongside respected local for-profit and non-profit companies, researching, presenting and recommending solutions to real problems. Our experienced coaches are engaged mentors who lead student teams by using their expertise to guide students in this valuable real-world experience.
