The theme for this year’s series is Collaborating for Impact. Our commitment to “Let Knowledge Serve” is reflected through our work alongside community partners to contribute in meaningful ways to our city, region and state. Together with our engaged partners, our faculty and students bring their expertise and enthusiasm to achieve a more equitable, resilient and sustainable future.
