For over a decade, the Obermann Graduate Institute on Engagement and the Academy, a week-long intensive collaboration between graduate students, faculty, campus staff members, and community leaders, has trained Institute graduate fellows in the skills required for working effectively across different areas of knowledge. This talk will overview the Institute fellows’ collaborations with graduate and faculty “alums,” campus staff members, and a growing number of community leaders and partners.
