Testimonials

"Before, there was no systematic way at all of knowing what people were doing, it was very ad hoc, Now, it's quick and easy. Let's say you wanted to know who is working on homeless issues at the university. You can do a quick search and find out who is doing that – it's a way to learn right away about people who might be in your network at the university and teach in different departments."

“Collaboratory can be a much more thorough and interactive version of what an individual's website could be. It's a good way to find out who you could possibly collaborate with at DePaul.”

"Collaboratory helps us see our efforts more tangibly. It's a venue for us to be out there in a different way – so people realize what kind of service we provide in the communities we are invited into. An x-ray or a map of the institution and the different components within it."

“It's a robust tool. Students can go in and look for opportunities or do a search by topic or community. It's much easier and more efficient than just reaching out to another department or hearing something from the grapevine.”
