Organizational Consulting Center (OCC)

The Organizational Consulting Center (OCC) at the San Diego campus functions as a small business unit within CSPP. We offer consulting services to businesses and organizations in the private and not for profit sectors and draw upon the expertise and interests of our faculty and students.

Most of the OCC’s client projects deal with issues of performance effectiveness and efficiency of individuals, departments, and entire organizations. Students who are selected to assist with such projects will gain hands-on experience working closely with a faculty member or one of our local consultant affiliates in performing work such as restructuring organizations, team building, culture realignment, leadership development, or coaching services. The type and number of projects vary from year to year and by campus because they depend on the initiative, creativity, personal contacts, and available time of students and faculty who enjoy these types of challenges.
