They are the Co-Chairs for the Danieley Neighborhood Association (DNA), which consists of students who reside in the neighborhood as well as faculty and staff who are engaged in various events and programs with the neighborhood. The “DNA” works to serve the interests of the residents in the Danieley Center community while planning and implementing programming that fulfills the goals and outcomes of the Danieley Center Neighborhood Plan. The DNA meets four to six times per year and offers leadership opportunities for students and an easy way for faculty and staff to become more engaged in the life of our neighborhood.
