The Interprofessional Program [IPRO] at Illinois Institute of Technology engages multidisciplinary teams of students in semester long projects based on real-world topics from sponsors that reflect the diversity of the workplace. An IPRO focused on the redevelopment activities of the Bronzeville neighborhood adjacent to campus has been offered for several semesters with each team's project building on work done by previous IPROs. The spring 2000 IPRO involved conducting oral interviews with Bronzeville residents.
