Please see our Fall 2020 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:
- Combating Food Insecurity: A team led by Northwestern professor Karen Smilowitz is assisting the city's food-resource task force to create a digital map of where food insecurity exists across Evanston. Their goal: address nutrient-related concerns resulting from stay-at-home orders and rising unemployment.
- Kellogg Helps Local Businesses: In the midst of a pandemic that has hit small businesses especially hard, Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management is stepping in to help with strategic consulting support for local Evanston business owners.
- Advancing Equity and Social Justice in Evanston: Northwestern will contribute $1 million to the city in what will be called the Good Neighbor Racial Equity Fund. Moreover, a $500,000 Racial Equity and Community Partnership Grant will be awarded to partnerships between community-based groups and Northwestern faculty, students, and staff.
Due to COVID-19, there are currently no Northwestern events open to the general public.
