Community Bus Tour for New Faculty and Staff
The Center for Community Partnerships invites faculty and staff to the Community Bus Tour of community partners in Racine on Friday, September 13, 2013, from 8:30 a.m. to noon. The tour is a great way for new faculty and staff to learn more about local nonprofit agencies and initiatives in their surrounding communities and about opportunities for collaboration between UW-Parkside classes/departments and local organizations.
The bus tour stops at five Racine businesses/nonprofits, starting with breakfast at Circa Celeste Cafe and a visit to the Marquette Sreet Urban Garden, the biggest garden in the Racine Urban Garden Network. The next stops are (in order), the Racine Literacy Council, Family Literacy of Racine and Human Capital Development Corporation. Each of the organizations has partnered with UW-Parkside on a variety of community-based learning programs in the past.
Join the tour RSVP by September 9 to Amanda DesLauriers at 262-595-2533 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
