A Collaborative Community

Collaboration is a hallmark of the way the Kellogg Institute both formally and informally interacts as a community and conducts research.  Formal opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration offered by the Institute include Working Groups, Research Clusters, and Academic Conferences that lead to collaborative publications.
