Our Team

CoLab Planning Team:


Seth Pollack

Professor and Director, Service Learning Institute | CSUMB

What’s exciting about CoLab is that we can look at our relative strengths and then
identify synergies that can happen if we’re more intentional about collaborating.


Kent Glenzer

Associate Professor | Middlebury Institute of International Studies

CoLab’s goal is to alter in quantum leap ways the educational impact of
engaged classrooms and to hold academia accountable in local contexts to
deliver quality to people who are supporting them.


Netta Avineri

Associate Professor | MIIS; Lecturer | CSUMB

It’s exciting that this work is local, involves both institutions, and is looking at systematic change and service.


Carolyn Taylor Meyer

Director of Immersive Professional Learning | MIIS

CoLab’s strengths include collaboration across schools, willing community partners, very caring people, and great minds.


Chrissy Hernandez

Assistant Professor | CSUMB

CoLab aims to challenge hegemonic understandings of research and knowledge. It values relationship-building, being of service, and listening.
