Baylor University uses PolicyMap to help students better engage with the Waco community.
“PolicyMap is an amazing tool that gives you a visual representation of demographics, education, economics, health. It’s a way to see visually statistics about people.”
Carol Schuetz, Baylor University’s Business Librarian, tasked her Business Communication students with helping the Waco Diaper Bank increase inventory.
By using PolicyMap, the students were able to identify areas in Waco where families were living in poverty. Using the data uploader, the students located the supermarkets in these communities so that the Diaper Bank could reach an agreement with stores to donate one pack of diapers to the Diaper Bank for every pack sold.
