Robert Morris University's ICenter allows students to work as consultants with real clients in an authentic work environment, all while earning "Integration Level" credentials, credit towards their degree and valuable work experience. In ICenter Projects, students can take initiative, make decisions and be accountable for results in a creative and supportive environment while working on projects that pertain to their professional goals. The ICenter is an institutional division at RMU, encompassing all campuses and all Schools of Study. Students from several different campuses and programs may work on the same ICenter Project.
