The Commons Map is continuously participating in events. We started a Meetup group to best host our new events. Members can connect better with each other and also add their voice to the discussion forums. We are calling this events space a 'collaboratory' as we work together to build a Great Lakes Commons.

Here is a list to track what we are up to. To have the Great Lakes Commons participate in your upcoming event, conference, classroom, or workshop -- please get in touch.
