Milstein Program Collab
The Collab (2 credit) seminar includes a speaker series, dynamic workshops (on public speaking, data visualization, leadership skills, design thinking, etc.) and cross-cohort collaborations.
The goal of the Collab course are:
- To establish a structure for students to engage in serious academic pursuits together as a group
- To support collaboration and team-building skill development
- To encourage engagement in communities outside the classroom
- To learn to think conceptually across disciplines
- To bring them into contact with a range of dynamic thinkers, artists, and community partners in order to prepare them for their summer residency in New York at Cornel Tech
