Co-Collab is part of the Barger Leadership Institute (BLI) Capstone Experience cohort of 2020. The Capstone Experience supports undergraduate teams in designing and implementing evidence-based, collaborative projects.
We value play. As adults, we just don’t get to do it enough. It’s our belief that play should be included in everything we do.
The Barger Leadership Institute offers programming for University of Michigan undergraduate students to learn and practice leadership. In fact, Ariel is a Lead Peer Facilitator for BLI's introductory mini-course, ALA175 Leadership Lab!
We are consistently open, honest, ethical, and genuine. We set high expectations for ourselves and produce work with high levels of craft and sophistication.
Co-Collab evolved from Bre's Sophomore Review project, The Dinner Table Conversations. 'Co' stands for Community, Connect, Conversation, and everything in between.
