We present ICON, a unique academic model for creating a transdisciplinary, community-engaged research opportunity for all undergraduate students enrolled at the University of Guelph. Students acquired skills in knowledge translation and transfer that allowed them to work together on a shared community based project. Preliminary data suggest that this program attracts students who would otherwise not have participated in research and that they identified having acquired a larger network of contacts and skills necessary for entry-level job placements.
