The University’s Office of Civic Engagement periodically hosts Neighborhood Conversations in communities in which we are actively engaged. These meetings provide opportunities for community members to hear updates on University efforts in each neighborhood and for the University to hear from the community about the work we are doing and ways we can strengthen our relationship with surrounding neighborhoods.

Discussions at each meeting focus on the neighborhood where the meeting is being held.
