Put your talents to use; connect with our local community

connect-20333_640You are cordially invited to Wednesday evening’s campus-community dialogue: “Co-Creating Our Community” event.  We plan to have affinity flags on tables with these topics:  youth, women, neighborhood beautification, and agriculture/sustainability.

It has been suggested that we distribute a campus resource directory listing our resources and/or desires for community connection.  Those who wish to give their information to community residents are being asked to email Barbara Beesley a simple 2-3 liner message indicating your interest/field of expertise; the kind of resource you could be to the community or the kind of community connection you are seeking; and the best means of contacting you.  Here are a few examples:

–   Barbara Beesley, IHM, teaches in the Social Justice program and would like venues (particularly among high school age students) for graduate students to do Voter Education workshops in October-November and February. bbeesley@marygrove.edu; 313-927-1403

–  Jesse Cox is concerned about Sustainability and Ecology.  He is involved with the Community Garden and the Herbal Healing Garden–a collaboration between the college, community partners and the Immaculate Heart of Mary Sisters who sponsor Marygrove College. jcox@marygrove.edu; 313-927-1404.

Please send your information by next Monday (5/13).
