The Institute for Social Change is taking a pause in 2022. Look for the program to return in May 2023.
In its place this year, look for one to two stand alone Rackham Public Scholarship events and workshops in May 2022. They will have open registration, no application required, and be announced in Rackham’s events calendar and in the Rackham Student Newsletter.
The Institute for Social Change aims to support your professional and academic development by helping you:
- Acquire working knowledge of key concepts and promising practices in public scholarship by exploring the practical, ethical, and theoretical dimensions of publicly engaged work in diverse professional, community, and organizational contexts
- Connect with peers in a supportive and collaborative space to imagine possibilities for connecting your scholarly and/or intellectual interests to community needs and the greater public good
- Increase confidence in applying scholarly expertise and skills to collaborate with community partners
- Become more familiar with the resources and support available for graduate students in public scholarship at the University of Michigan and beyond
