The Campus to Community Excursion

Thursday, October 15th, 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.
