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.

Doggy Bag Stations

(Written by Tanner Wood, Staff Coordinator)

We all strive for a cleaner campus, but unfortunately, dog poop litters some of our most prominent community spaces. To address this issue, we are working to install pet waste stations in the areas most highly trafficked by our furry friends. These areas include the field between Aramark STAR complex and Geasey field, W Berks st next to George Washington Carver High School between 17th and 18th St, and along Beury Beach. Each waste station will provide doggy bags to clean up dog waste and waste baskets to put used bags in.
