University of Delaware Launches Campus and Community Coalition

Sally Linowski, Associate Dean for Off-Campus Student Life and Community Education at UMass Amherst, recently led the strategic planning retreat for the University of Delaware's new campus and community coalition. An article in UDaily details the start-up's efforts.

"To improve safety and quality of life for both campus and community members, a strategic and collaborative approach grounded in evidence-based practice is essential. Coalitions work when the right players - from the community, police, campus, alcohol retailers, students, media, faculty and staff - come together to address the issues with multiple planned initiatives," Linowski explained.
