Heller Working Groups

Working Groups at the Heller School provide students an outside-the-classroom opportunity to work together with other students, faculty, and staff who share a commitment and common interest in an issue related to some part of Heller’s mission. Working Groups often form around issues that cut across many or all of Heller’s degree programs.
