Community Outreach Weekend #1, Fall 1997
East St. Louis Community Outreach Weekend #1 was a huge success, as 100 students, staff, and faculty completed projects at ten sites across the city of East St. Louis on September 26 and 27. Neighborhood organizations in East St. Louis identified each of these projects and contacted the University for assistance. Students were also given the opportunity to discuss their ideas about the work the East St. Louis Action Research Project has been conducting in the city and how their expectations compared to their actual experiences.
