Collaborate LLC

Civic engagement that leads to a participatory democracy.

Who is a collaborator? A collaborator pursues and values partnerships. We get out in the community and learn from one another, activating communication and participation in both our local and global communities. Join us – be a collaborator.

Collaborate students will be housed in Maher Hall. This residence hall is located on main campus and residents appreciate a short walk to class. Aromas Cafeé is located on the first floor of the building, giving students easy access to a wide range of snacks, meals, and specialty coffees and teas. Copley Library is also just a stone’s throw away from Maher Hall.


Begin quote I am passionate about Collaborate because this theme circulates around the ability of students to engage with their own diverse community in a civil and respectful way. Collaborate is unique in that it has direct application in today's political climate. Students need to be able to engage with those they may not necessarily agree with or collaborate with those who they fully agree with while still keeping other perspectives in mind. – Luke Garrett, Facilitating Resident Assistant for Collaborate

Begin quote I believe that collaboration is a vital component of USD because it strengthens our community. I'm excited to be a part of a theme that promotes teamwork and collaboration among the incoming students. People coming together to learn from each other is an important aspect of life to which everyone can relate. – Lauren Kafka, Facilitating Scholastic Assistant for Collaborate
