Please see our Fall 2017 newsletter showcasing our partnerships with Evanston civic leaders, non-profits, businesses, schools, and local residents. Our Neighborhood News shares the work of individuals and programs that strengthen the connection between our University and our city.
This fall, we highlight:
- Local Business Helps Secure Victory: Luna Security, a local minority-owned business is one of many partners—which also include Evanston’s fire and police departments—that collaborate with the University to ensure safe and enjoyable experiences during Northwestern’s largest events.
- Shooting Hoops at Twiggs Park: With the newly renovated basketball court at Twiggs Park, Evanston youth now have another place to shoot hoops. The new court is just north of Payne Street and west of Dewey Avenue.
- Preparing for College Success: Evanston Scholars prepares high school students who are from low-income backgrounds, students of color, and first generation students for the college admissions process through mentorship, access to resources, and guidance.
- Evanston's 9th Ward: Home to many residents, businesses, and several District 65 schools, the Ninth Ward is a close-knit neighborhood on the city's southern side.
- Shayla Butler, Partner Relationship Administrator: She works on efforts to strengthen existing partnerships between the University and the City of Evanston while also cultivating new collaborations.
