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.

Please note the following housing information on these pages reflects current decisions for the 2021-2022 academic year. Please note that changes to LLC placements to the residence halls are still possible due to COVID-19. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Collaborate students will be housed in Maher Hall, additionally all first-year commuter students will be part of this theme! This residence hall is located on main campus, where residents can appreciate a short walk to class. Aromas Café 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. Coed by wing, all Maher rooms have private baths and accommodate double room housing for residents.


Begin quote I believe the Collaborate LLC to be a safe space for people to come together for a purpose greater than themselves. In our modern global society, people succeed and discover their greatest strengths when helping others succeed. As a Changemaker campus, students can put words into action with a group of like-minded individuals who seek connecting meaningfully with others and celebrating differences and diverse backgrounds. We are building a community willing to create a better future, one step at a time! – Allison Lu, Facilitating Scholastic Assistant for Collaborate

Begin quote To collaborate means to build together. Almost everything that we do is in collaboration with others, whether that be at school, in clubs, on teams or even just with friends. We each bring such unique and special talents and perspectives to each situation that we can help to grow something by all working together and working with what surrounds us. We at USD are Changemakers and we are able to create this change because of the culture of collaboration. – Christina Kozlovsky, Coaching Residential Assistant for Collaborate
