The Campus to Community Excursion

The next Campus to Community Excusion will take place fall 2015.

Offered annually, this event helps faculty to learn about one of our closest neighborhoods, the Hill District, as a means to understand the social context, history, assets, and agendas of a community in which so much of our communtiy-University engagement occurs. The excursion is led by community leaders, with stops to visit a variety of organizations and initiatives. 

On the excursion, you will meet community partners onsite at their agencies and hear their thoughts on navigating agency-faculty partnerships, preparing students for partnership and providing service, and mutually discovering the agendas that will be served.  See our brief video about a previous Excursion experience.

Visits to city historic sites like the New Granada Theater in the Hill District will inform our understanding of the rich cultural history of each Pittsburgh neighborhood.
