Obermann Graduate Institute Application Deadline

The Obermann Graduate Institute is a one-week interdisciplinary institute in which UI graduate students from across campus and at any point in their graduate studies explore how civic engagement can enhance teaching, research, and creative work. Participants discuss theories of engagement and meet with experts, including former Obermann Graduate Fellows, faculty members, UI administrators, and potential community partners. They also develop their own engaged projects, reconceiving their art, scholarship, and teaching to address community needs.
