The Community Impact Residency brings together students interested in the practice of civic engagement and a cross-section of community stakeholders – local leaders, resident-led groups, nonprofits, and municipal government – committed to creating just, equitable, and sustainable communities.
This Community Impact Residency Speaker Series event will feature Mark Abraham from DataHaven. Mark will talk about DataHaven’s model, their state-wide Community Wellbeing data, and will show participants how to access and utilize this data for their community engagement work.
