Common Grounds
2011-2012 Client Request for Proposal
DEADLINE: September 1, 2011
 The Common Grounds Steering Committee requests proposals for a consulting projectfor the 2011-2012 academic school year. This year, we are opening up projects forsemester or year long timelines in order to better fit client and student needs.Guided by the principle that complex problems require collaboration across disciplines,Common Grounds brings together approximately thirty students from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management, Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs, andLaw School. Common Grounds engages community issues from an interdisciplinaryapproach by providing professional research and consultation to businesses andorganizations. In addition, Common Grounds provide students with a forum to developcollaborative ideas and to promote integrative leadership.Members of Common Grounds will work together in groups to research the project over atwo-month period. We will ask you to direct us to materials you think we shouldinvestigate and take our own initiative to find resources to provide the best researchproduct.We ask that any participant is able to attend a meeting of our whole group on a Mondaymorning in early October during which you can present the project and outline severalareas of research for our members to pursue. We also would like to schedule a midpointand final presentation of deliverables where appropriate.We are happy to answer questions about past projects and our method of working, andfind that gaining the basic information this form provides is a great starting place. Wewould also ask to have at least one meeting with your organization prior to selection sowe can shape the project together and set expectations. Common Grounds does notcharge for these services, but may ask your organization to contribute something of value for our members, for example a meal for a meeting.COMMON GROUNDS STEERING COMMITTEE:Amelia Brunelle (Chair), Astrid Brouillard, Jay Creagh, Leah Lundquist, Chris Schmitterhttp://commongroundsmn.org/
