  • Issue based: really help focus your teams, teams could have meetings regarding the issue. This higher level engagement with the issue area, helps them be able to perform higher level activities as they have a better understanding of the core issue. \n\nFaculty members, campus staff and community partners could also take a role in mentoring issue based/site based team. The Staff at the homeless shelter could have a lot of knowledge to share with your housing team.
