Getting work done efficiently & with style

In supporting UI scholars and artists, the Obermann Center organizes dozens of events each year, including a major humanities symposium that is planned starting two years in advance and pop-up events organized in a week or less. We have developed a myriad of strategies and campus and community partners that help us GET THINGS DONE, and we want to share them with you!

So, bring your lunch, pull up a chair, and let's get things done.
