Figure It Out Workshop 

Led by Breauna Campbell ‘14, John GeddesSally Phelps & Mark Somerville 

Let's re-imagine how Olin faculty, staff, alumni, and students might work together to advance Olin and Olin's vision.  What might it look like for Olin to truly work with alumni as "partners"?  In what ways might Olin better engage the whole Olin community as we take on our next big challenge? What would a radical rethinking of "alumni engagement" look like in light of our vision for Olin's future?  This generative workshop will identify both big ideas and actionable steps as we figure it out.
