How do we cultivate collaboration?
At Mead, learning is doing, and project-based work is often done in pairs and teams.
Faculty build deep relationships with students, modeling and scaffolding collaboration. And students are given the opportunity and tools to reflect on how they work and play with others, nurturing the development of robust interpersonal skills.
