2021 Graduate Institute on Engagement & the Academy

The 2021 Institute will meet virtually on January 11–14. There will be daily readings and conversations as well as asynchronous opportunities. Each participant will receive a $500 stipend and is named an Obermann Graduate Fellow.

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.

Application details are available at the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies website.
