Reaching Out

Yesterday, I walked the neighborhood next to campus with students, staff, and city government officials to reach out to our community residents and off-campus students with friendly greetings, conversation, and information. We do this every year as part of our larger Good Neighbor Project to build community and campus relationships. Outreach on the personal level and connecting with the community—another important way we serve.

Dr. Perry: This is such a great idea. I'm sure the community appreciates the effort, and it puts the cabash on the us vs. them mentality that causes a lot of rifts between colleges and their communities. Touché EIU!
