WKU ALIVE Center for Community Partnerships Uniting the Community

BOWLING GREEN, KY- In an effort to identify and support common goals amongst campus professionals and community leaders, the WKU ALIVE Center for Community Partnerships (ALIVE CCP) will host a Campus & Community Network meeting at the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, November 12 at 2:30pm.

The Campus & Community Network is designed to serve as a connector for campus and community experts that want to work collaboratively to address needs in the community.

WKU ALIVE Center director Leah Ashwill says, “The network meeting is a great opportunity for participants to explore a project idea or address an ongoing challenge their organization may be experiencing. By doing so in collaboration with other professionals, attendees may find partners with expertise in areas for which they are seeking input…sharing assets is a great way to build community!”

During the network meeting, representative Mandy Hix of United Way of Southern Kentucky will present UWSK’s new Community Impact Plan, designed to create long-term community change. The plan was developed using research-based community strategies to address what South Central Kentuckians reported as our most pressing challenges. Network participants can use this information to guide their work.

Those participating in the Campus & Community Network meeting will have an opportunity to meet with up to three different partners or groups of their interest. Those interested can sign up at https://www.wku.edu/alive where they will be asked to submit a 150 word or less description of the work they hope to accomplish through a partnership with community experts or students, faculty and staff.
