What is EPIC-N?
The EPIC-Network (EPIC-N) connects communities with the human capital of universities to improve the quality of life and social wealth for all involved. EPIC-N is the nonprofit association of institutions that adopt the award-winning EPIC model for university-community partnership.
The EPIC model is simple but powerful. It brings together the greatest resources in academia — professors, students, laboratories, research libraries, existing curriculum — and creatively draws them together to tackle the biggest challenges in local communities. The results are felt immediately with lasting transformative effects: Solutions that might never be imagined through traditional structures, public goodwill toward the university, real-world learning for students, and meaningful change felt throughout the community.
By adopting the EPIC Model, colleges and universities around the world can be more active in finding the best ways to make life richer and more sustainable for generations to come.
