CIL is pleased to promote and support the work of Common Grounds, a interdisciplinary student-led graduate student team that applies the concept of integrative leadership to community challenges. Guided by the principle that complex problems require cross-sector collaboration, Common Grounds brings together 30 graduate students from across the University of Minnesota to explore community issues; provide professional research and consultation services to community organizations; and practice and promote integrative leadership.
Currently four graduate schools are represented in Common Grounds membership:
- Carlson School of Management
- Humphrey School of Public Affairs
- Law School
- School of Public Health
