Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of the 2016-2017 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of Brooklyn Park. Student services, such a childcare opportunity or dining opportunities, have been shown to increase the overall student experience and retention. North Hennepin Community College wishes to increase the amount of student services it provides. Students in Dr. Greg Lindsey’s Planning and Public Affairs Capstone Workshop conducted focus groups and administered surveys to students at the college to better understand what services they valued most. The results showed that students value food-based services most, with the exception of parent-students who prefer childcare services over other services. The students’ final report and presentation are available.
Report and presentation completed by students enrolled in PA 8081: Public Affairs Capstone, taught by Greg Lindsey in spring 2017.
This project was supported by the Resilient Communities Project (RCP), a program at the University of Minnesota whose mission is to connect communities in Minnesota with U of MN faculty and students to advance local sustainability and resilience through collaborative,
