Site Visit Will Give Faculty an Inside View of Chicago Program's Connections and Resources

Dec 12, 2014
Guichard Gallery

A Chicago Program field trip to Guichard Gallery in Bronzeville.

"We want faculty to see how we teach and the kind of experience we offer to students," said Robyne Hart, Director of the ACM Chicago Program. That chance will come in the spring when the program sponsors a faculty site visit to Chicago.

"The site visit will take the theme of Chicago and Innovation as a way to show how the program gets students involved in cutting edge things that are happening in the city, from participatory art to community organizing and activism to start-up companies," she said.

A group of faculty from ACM colleges will be selected to visit the Chicago Program on April 8-10, 2015. While they're in the city, they will interact with students, program staff, and some of the local partners — businesses, artists, organizations — that support the program's experiential components by hosting internships and seminar field trips.
