9/14/17 Follow-Up: Immediate-Launch Info Session

Dear Colleagues,

We write to follow up on last week’s Immediate-Launch Democracy Lab information session. 

Many compelling ideas were shared at the session, and a number of those present expressed interest in partnering with other faculty.

To capture the great concepts articulated at the information session, we invite you to share your ideas on the Immediate-Launch Democracy Lab. The content you submit will be posted to the Democracy Initiative website to help continue the dialogue and foster additional collaboration. We ask that you take a moment to do this by COB on Sept 19, 2017.

As you know, details about the call as well as Ian’s cover letter are both available on the Arts & Sciences website.

You are welcome to direct your questions to us, and please let us know if the Dean’s Office can help in any way—particularly with preparing the budget portion of the call. A list of participants from the information session is also listed below for your convenience. Please share this message with other faculty colleagues as you see fit.
