Town and Gown

Date: Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Start Time:
End Time: 5:00 PM
Location: ONLINE
The registration period has closed for this event.

Kate Edenborg leads discussions on the concept of “town and gown.' While UW-Stout sits in the center of downtown Menomonie, many in the community feel distanced from the university. This group would have the opportunity to discuss this distance and sometimes tension between the town and the college. While could also highlight the connections and the collaborations, the discussion would focus on getting a sense of what the relationship is like now and what could be done to change it. A few texts provide examples of case studies of other campuses and cities and that would be the starting point. There's also UW Community Engagement Colleagues Network that could contribute to the conversation.

Meeting times will be determined by participants after registration ends at 5 PM on Wednesday, September 15th.
