Consistent with the broad vision of Dr. Blackburn, the work of the Institute does not end with completion of the student curriculum, graduation, and transition to the role of a Fellow. Fellows fulfill their lifetime commitment to service through their professions, civic engagement projects, and lived experiences. The Institute continues to support the leadership development and direct service of individual Fellows as well as collaboration across the community.
