Note: Some of these courses are part of the Collaborative Cluster Initiative, hosted by the Allbritton Center. Collaborative Clusters bring together collaborative teams (“Clusters”) comprised of multidisciplinary experts and students to work on a project with a sustained theme over an entire academic year. The theme for the 2016-2017 school year is mass incarceration. These classes are open to anyone, regardless if you apply to join the Collaborative Cluster team. If you are interested in applying to the Collaborative Cluster team and working on a project related to mass incarceration throughout the school year, you can read more here.
