Neighborhood & Community Engagement Initiatives

Temple University is at the center of an ever-growing surrounding community, one filled with several small businesses and opportunities that do not receive the recognition that they deserve. ReimagineTU aims to propose a collaborative experience with the many small businesses and students on campus by potentially hosting podcasts at these different locations where students are able to converse with the small businesses of Philadelphia about certain topics, some of which are taken from an active/open chat box where both students and organizations can leave comments, questions, and concerns to be answered—morphing the once destructive image of Temple students into a constructive bond between the students of Temple University and the surrounding community. Alongside this initiative, ReimagineTU plans to host open town halls for students and community residents and provide service/volunteer resources for students to become more involved within the community (including the Temple University Police Department’s “Toys for Tots” event); it is crucial for both the community and the students of this University to collaborate.

Community & Student Leader Forumn

ReimagineTU hopes to engage with the local community, and provide a platform for all residents to voice concerns.

Breaking it down...

In order to take a meaningful step in bridging the gap between Temple University and the surrounding North Philadelphia community we can start by hearing from each other. ReimagineTU envisions hosting a Community and Student Leaders Forum. We can host a recurring open town hall for both students and community residents to attend to discuss various issues impacting both students and residents including but not limited to: community engagement, litter, crime and local issues. Temple Student Government can engage community organizations such as George Washington Carver High School, Berean Presbyterian Church, Paul L. Dunbar School and TUPD.
