Collaborative Doers for Humanity


We help glocalize the networks and mobilize resources for Carthans across regions as well as generations young and old.

The CARTHA Fellows program is designed to introduce younger faculty, professionals, and students into intergenerational, academic-practitioner networks of Collaborative Doers in the belief that such early exposure will enable these individuals to:

  • Build their Collaborative Competence skill-sets;
  • Develop new curricular and training programs;
  • Serve as role models within their peer groups and across wider communities-of-practice; and
  • Contribute their unique talent and creativity into CARTHA programs

If you are interested in learning more about our Fellows or Student Intern programs, partnering with CARTHA on such programs, or supporting the activities of our CARTHA Fellows and Student Interns through financial or in-kind contributions, please contact us.
