This papers objective is to identify and document lessons learned and understand what factors make a PUC project successful in terms of benefit to project participants and the community served as well as what characteristics lead to project challenges. A lessons learned database was constructed to document the lessons learned from 11 different final PUC project repots. This database was then analyzed to examine trends among the lessons learned. Recommendations are made regarding the possible applications of the lessons learned database to the PUC program and other potential benefactors.Advisors/Committee Members: O'Connor, James Thomas (advisor), Ellzey, Janet L.
