2021 Graduate Institute on Engagement & the Academy

Monday, January 11, 2021 (All day) to Thursday, January 14, 2021 (All day)

The 2021 Graduate Institute on Engagement and the Academy will meet virtually January 11–14. There will be daily readings and conversations as well as asynchronous opportunities. 

The Obermann Graduate Institute is a 3 1/2-day interdisciplinary institute in which UI graduate students from across campus and at any point in their graduate studies explore how public engagement can enhance teaching, research, and creative work. By the end of the Institute, participants will be familiar with the history of public engagement, current trends, and be able to both differentiate between and apply various modes of engagement to teaching and research projects.
