Gateway: For Community Partners

Get Involved:  Join the Gateway Community!

The Practice Department is always looking for new community partners - nonprofits, neighborhood groups, municipal and community organizations. We work with our community clients to help clarify project scope, goals, and deliverables, and to uncover and develop creative ways our students can gain professional experience by working on community projects.

We do not work for individuals or for-profit companies, and we do not offer full-service architectural or design services [i.e. stamped drawings], such as clients would get at a professional design firm. Rather, we provide services - from analysis/feasibility studies to design, design/build, and post-occupancy analysis - that allow our community clients to embark on fundraising campaigns, put together RFPs, or conduct research. If you and your organization have an idea for a project and you're not sure it's a good fit for Gateway, contact Benjamin Peterson, Director of Practice Instruction and Student Services, 617.585.0143, or send an email to practice@the-bac.edu. We would love to hear from you!
