Event Description

A roundtable discussion with innovative leaders of arts, humanities, service, and advocacy organizations in greater New Haven, aimed at helping build sustainable partnerships between university students and the greater New Haven community. The goal of the event is two-fold: to educate students about the wide range of opportunities to work for the common good in greater New Haven and to highlight the diverse interests and talents students can bring to the task.

Seven outstanding community leaders will discuss their work, how they came to do it, and how students can contribute to the mission of their organization. SCSU student-ambassadors will facilitate a discussion with the participants, which everyone will be invited to join. A reception at Connecticut Hall will follow, providing an informal occasion for students and participants to meet and continue the conversation.

Panelists will include:

  • Patrick Dunn, Executive Director, New Haven Pride Center
  • Alexine Casanova: Director of Case Management, IRIS (Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services)
  • Elsie Chapman: Vice Chair, Board of Directors, International Festival of Arts and Ideas
  • Erik Clemons, President and CEO, Connecticut Center for Arts and Technology

When “Hoops in the Hood” Became “Hoops in the House”

When Covid-19 came to Chicago, Hoops in the Hood, LISC's long-running basketball-community-building-and-safety program, morphed into the perfect antidote for quarantine stress and boredom. Now, hundreds of kids and their parents across the city are staying active, and logging their exercise minutes, in a true Chicago-style competition between neighborhoods.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.

We Have Reached the Housing Cliff

As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.
