The Center for Innovative Collaboration & Leadership helps Suffolk faculty find partners for research (e.g., international partners); present their work in progress in suitable public arenas (e.g. workshops, conferences co-sponsored by Center); get research grant support through external grants and summer research, and; meet business, non-profit and governmental representatives who might become future consulting clients or project partners.
