Please see our Fall 2021 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:
- Summer STEAM Activities for Evanston Youths: Evanston's first Summer Fest, a seven-week STEAM program, took place this year, giving middle school children the chance to explore everything from flying drones to woodworking. Read more about how Northwestern engaged with Evanston youths this past summer.
- City, University Pilot Guaranteed Income Program: Last year marked a turning point in Northwestern's understanding of its obligation to be a good neighbor, as it shifted the program's focus to address the needs of those left at the the margin of society. The Racial Equity Fund was designed to meet those needs.
- Racial Equity and Community Partnership Grant Recipients: This past year, ten organizations received partnership grants and eleven received incubator grants. All twenty one projects represent efforts to dismantle structural racism through collaborations between Northwestern and the community. Here's how two awardees are using their grants.
