Please see our Fall 2023 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:
- Bright Star Community Outreach: Compared with white populations, Black communities have traditionally had significantly less access to palliative care. Through a $50,000 Racial Equity and Community Partnership Grant, the palliative care team in the Feinberg School of Medicine’s Department of Medicine has helped the Bronzeville neighborhood’s Bright Star Community Outreach address that disparity.
- Cultivate Collective/Osher Center Partnership: Through a $75,000 Racial Equity and Community Partnership Grant, a soon-to-open community wellness facility on Chicago’s Southwest Side has greatly benefited from a partnership with the Osher Center for Integrative Health in Northwestern’s Feinberg School of Medicine. The Cultivate Collective/Academy for Global Citizenship site will include teaching kitchens, healthcare and fitness centers, and a produce marketplace..
- Black Metropolis Research Consortium: Housed within the University of Chicago, the Black Metropolis Research Consortium is committed to increasing capacity at Chicago-area Black archives and to supporting projects that preserve and amplify Black histories and legacies. Those goals proved to be a perfect fit for a partnership with Northwestern’s Center for Civic Engagement.
