Please see our Winter 2018 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 winter, we highlight:
- Coding in the Classroom: Driven by Evanston/Skokie School District 65’s EvanSTEM project, in partnership with Northwestern University’s Digital Youth Network (DYN), Code65 is designed to introduce students to key coding skills, inspire creative and critical thinking, and help them create technology.
- Lighting the Way: Last year marked the seventh year that representatives from the city of Evanston and members of the Northwestern community under-took a “light walk” to identify dark areas of the city and streetlights needing repair or replacement.
- Renovations at ETHS’s Beardsley Gym: A partnership between Evanston Township High School and Northwestern Athletics afforded ETHS the opportunity to renovate its gym.
- Evanston's 3rd Ward: Home to many residents, and businesses, the Third Ward runs along the city's southeast corner.
- La Tanya Simms, Senior Director of Capital Programs: She ensures that Northwestern's many design and construction projects go according to plan.
We also invite you to join us for events open to the public:
