Community - Campus Day of Service

April 5, 2014

On Saturday, April 5th, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign kicked off National Volunteer Week with an inaugural Community-Campus Day of Service. Over 60 students, faculty and staff worked with six community partners on seven projects to complete pre-construction projects, community garden spring preparation projects, flyering in the community, reorganizing classrooms at Tap in Leadership Academy, cataloging choral literature, and preparing a Bee Garden. A big thank you goes out to all who helped on April 5!


Enriching perspectives through community engagement

Hi! I'm Jenna Goebig. I am a second year graduate student in the Joint MBA/MArch program.  In May 2009, I graduated with my BS-Architectural Studies from the University of Illinois. I am Illini through and through! 

From working on BoP product development in India to grassroots engagement in East St. Louis, I have grown a deep interest in social sustainability and bottom-up learning.I also enjoy working with and for Non-Profits. During undergrad, I was involved with Freedom by Design, a non profit organization through the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) that 'utilizes the talents of architecture students to radically impact the lives of people in their community through modest design and construction solutions.' During my senior year (2008-09), I served as a Co-Captain of FBD and teamed up with ESLARP to complete a design/build project in East St. Louis in Fall 2008.
During the summer 2010, I worked as a Research Assistant for Professor Lynne Dearborn and conducted a housing/neighborhood study in East St. Louis. 

Through my many experiences, I have fallen in love with the program and people over the last year and am thrilled to be coordinating the Outreach Weekends throughout grad school.
