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 and facilities have been shown to increase the overall student experience and student retention. To that end, North Hennepin Community College is interested in constructing a new fine arts center. Students in Jennifer Blevins’ Advanced Community Practice: Assessment, Organizing, and Advocacy class conducted surveys to better understand what fine arts needs the general public desires most. Based on their findings, the students ultimately recommended the college work to better foster relationships with local community groups, develop children’s fine arts programming, and produce programming that is relevant to the residents of Brooklyn Park. The students’ final report and presentation are available.
Report and presentation completed by students enrolled in SW 8551: Advanced Community Practice: Assessment, Organizing, and Advocacy, taught by Jennifer Blevins in spring 2017.
