- Provide professional development opportunities for graduate students interested in careers as public scholars within and/or outside the academy.
- Support mutually-beneficial creative and scholarly collaborations between U-M graduate students and community organizations that further the public roles of the arts, design, and humanities.
- Develop sustainable partnerships that strengthen local communities with arts, cultural, and civic organizations in southeastern Michigan and across the Great Lakes region.
- Work with U-M graduate students and faculty to integrate concepts and methodologies from public scholarship into graduate curricula in the arts, design, and humanities.
