Alumni of the East Side Institute: Report from the Field

Many who participate in the Institute’s study and training activities are involved in bringing grassroots innovations to the university and the latest intellectual advances from the university to communities. Some enter our programs as community-based practitioners who then develop university ties, like Syed Rahman (in Bangladesh) and Miguel Cortes (in Mexico). Others are university-located educators, like Babafemi Babatope (in Nigeria), who is featured in this issue of our newsletter. This kind of cross-fertilization is an important boundary-breaking activity that I am excited to be seeing more and more of, not only among our graduates and colleagues but in many other creative circles.
