In CAP, we thrive on partnerships with our community. Here’s a quick peek at how some of our most consistent partners worked with just one of our faculty members this year.

Partners and Projects

Avondale Methodist Church ministers in a myriad of ways to its southside community, Thomas Park-Avondale

ecoREHAB fixes up rundown homes with the help of high school students, college students, and other volunteers.

Avondale wants to use a house it owns on West Ninth Street as transitional housing for single men. Partnering with ecoREHAB, Associate Lecturer of Construction Management Janet Fick and her students in construction management and architecture, complete a site evaluation. Students provide a house redesign, draft renderings and construction documents, and complete a cost estimate. EcoREHAB will complete the renovations, likely with help from CAP students.


Urban Light Community Development Corp runs a recovery program and a housing revitalization initiative in the Industry and South Central neighborhoods.

Urban Light, working with their partners, purchase vacant lots at auction and need stock plans for new homes they could build efficiently to serve its community. Students, working under Fick’s supervision, completed designs for new construction houses, including construction documents, renderings and cost estimates. Students created three designs: for a single home, a duplex and a quadplex.


The Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie serving Muncie youth with sports, tutoring, and more, after school and during the summer.

The Muncie Boys & Girls Clubs could use a new building, so Fick and students in her special topics class created renderings, plans, and cost estimates to help them take steps toward their goals.
