Treetop Commons is pleased to invite current Collaboratory administrators to join us in Chicago, Illinois, for our second annual Collaboratory Summit, immediately following the CUMU Conference. This event will support you to deepen your understanding of community engagement and public service at your institution.


Together, through small-group discussions and large group conversations, we will explore how to:

  • Deepen (i.e., engage others) use of Collaboratory and sustain long term the work started

  • Deepen relationships with and learnings from other Administrators

  • Deepen our community engagement as we review what we are learning


  • Identify resources you may want to share with others that will help them understand how you are using Collaboratory. We will have a table available for resource sharing.

  • Identify questions you may want to address with others using Collaboratory. Forward your questions to collaboratory@treetopcommons.com.
