Please see our Winter 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 winter, we highlight:
- Divas in the Digital Spotlight: Digital Youth Divas is a free program started by Northwestern Professor Nichole Pinkard to get middle school girls involved in STEM activities. The program begins in the fourth grade and tracks the outcomes through high school.
- Elevating Evanston Youth: Created in June 2018, MEAC (Mayor's Employer Advisory Council) fosters connections between ETHS and local employers to provide career opportunities for young people who don’t want to go to college.
- Levy Senior Center: An All-Stop Shop: As the city’s second-most-used center, the Levy Senior Center offers older adults art and fitness classes, organizes trips to cultural events, and provides assistance with tasks like signing up for Medicare and renewing driver’s licenses, in addition to having regular health screenings.
- Ashley Wanland, Assitant Director of Community Relations for Athletics: In this role, Ashley Wanland works with local businesses, community groups, and organizations and coordinates outreach activities for student athletes.
We also invite you to join us for events open to the public:
Through April 5, Block Museum, 40 Arts Circle Drive
With works from NYU’s Abby Weed Grey Collection, this free exhibit surveys art from Iran, Turkey, and India—three nations where unique and vibrant forms of modernism sprang forth in the 1960s and ’70s.
- Men's Baseball: Northwestern vs. Kent State
Friday, 3/13, 3:00 PM, Rocky and Berenice Miller Park, 2751 Ashland Avenue
Cheer on the ’Cats at their home opener! Visit nusports.com for more information. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for youth.
- 89th Annual Waa-Mu Show: State of the Art
Friday, 5/1 to Sunday, 5/10, Cahn Auditorium, 600 Emerson Street
In this student-produced original musical, follow a covert group of artists vandalizing world-renowned pieces of street art in a metropolis of the not-so-distant future. When the mayor’s misfit child crosses paths with the vandals, the city elite find themselves caught between their dream of the city on the national stage and the truth behind the young citizens’ acts of resistance. Tickets $10–$30.
