Professor Stevenson and the Community Director are the Co-Chairs for the East Neighborhood Association, which consists of students who reside in the neighborhood as well as faculty and staff who are engaged in various events and programs in the neighborhood. The Neighborhood Association works to sponsor programs and activities that promote the intellectual theme of the neighborhood as well as community development and cohesiveness. The Neighborhood Association 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.
