The Masters School partnered with USU to develop and refine academic and extracurricular programming for our Innovation and Entrepreneurship programs—and the partnership has been fantastic.  Not only have we set the stage for several years of thoughtful curricular growth, but we’ve also developed an interdisciplinary model that embeds the entrepreneurial mindset across our entire curriculum.  Throughout our partnership it has been clear that USU stays on top of the constantly evolving demands and competencies required to thrive in today’s and tomorrow’s economy...Our partnership has been invigorating and inspiring; a true pleasure!

“Thank you to the leadership at University Startups in supporting GOOD Projects on its vision to support 500 families to achieve success. Without strong, committed partners like University Startups, none of our work would be possible"

"The Employment Search Course Le-Marie designed for our program is simply amazing. The topics relate with where are parents are in their career journey. Most of them are working and are looking to elevate and just needed the tools and supports to get them on the right path. We also have a great instructor in Le-Maries. She comes with the knowledge and resources but she also makes herself available to each participant in the course. We're really thrilled to keep the partnership going for future cohorts“

 Jasmine Campbell, Program Lead at GOOD Projects.
